Trustees Pick John W. Lederle New UM President 

Dr. Robert W. Gage 
New Health Director 

Dr. Robert W. Gage, an Am- 
herst physician, has been ap- 
pointed Director of Health Serv- 
ices at the University of Massa- 
chusetts, it was announced recent- 
ly by Dr. Shannon McCune, pro- 
vost of the University. 

Dr. Gage, 43, will direct all 
health services for the Univer- 
sity's 6,000 students under a new 
program recently formulated by a 
distinguished board of visitors 
headed by Dr. Willard Dalrymple, 
physician with the Harvard Uni- 
versity Health Services. Duties 
of the new position will include 
supervision of the new University 
Infirmary now under construction 
on campus and scheduled for 
completion during the next aca- 
demic year. 

Dr. Ernest J. Radcliffe, former- 
ly senior physician at the Uni- 
versity, will retire September 1 
after 30 years of service. 

Dr. Gage, who received the 
unanimous approval of the 
screening committee of the Board 
of Visitors and of the University 

screening committee, is a native 
of Needham who received his B.S. 
degree with honors from the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts in 1938. 
After taking an M.D, degree at 
Harvard Medical School in 1942, 
he served his internship at the 
Pennsylvania Hospital in Phila- 

A junior medical officer in the 
U.S. Navy during World War II, 
Dr. Gage served aboard the 
USS Altair and had charge of fa- 
cilities in the ship's 25-bed bay 
staffed by 20 corpsmen. 

After the war he engaged in 
private medical and surgical prac- 
tice in Ulysses, Pa., for several 
years. In 1954 he moved to Am- 
herst where he has conducted a 
large practice in general medicine. 
A member of the staff of the 
Cooley Dickinson Hospital, Dr. 
Gage has served on a number of 
committees of that institution, in- 
cluding the Perinatal Mortality 
Committee. At present he is 
chairman of the hospital's Rec-

Ending a search of over six 
months, the trustees of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Tues- 
day named John William Lederle, 
48, professor of political science 
and director of the Institute of 
Public Administration at the 
University of Michigan, new 
president of the University of 

The salary of the new presi- 
dent will be at the discretion of 
the trustees, between $20,000 and 

$25,000 a year, plus expense al- 
lowances and housing. The salary 
bill was finally passed by the 
Massachusetts Senate after some 
bitter fig'hting the last week of 
June. It had been given relative- 
ly easy House passage many 
months earlier. 

Lederle, who is an attorney 
and a doctor of philosophy, will 
succeed the controversial Jean 
Paul Mather who announced his 
resignation last fall at the 

Dr. Goldberg Named 
University Professor 

Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg, edu 
cator and author, has been named 
the first University Professor at 
the University of Massachusetts, 
it was announced Friday by Prov- 
ost Shannon McCune. 

Dr. Goldberg, head of the Eng- 
lish department from 1935 to 
1960, will undertake activities re- 
lating to the academic program of 
the University at large. 

The new professorship, one of 
a number to be established at 
the University, was made possible 
ai a result of more flexible per- 
sonnel grades proposed by the 
Board of Trustees and ratified in 
February by the State legislature. 
The grades were instituted as a 
means of aiding the University in 
the recruitment and retention of 
outstanding educators. 

As University Professor, Dr. 
Goldberg will aid in developing 
special programs designed to ex- 
pand academic opportunities for 
the state um'versity's student 
body. He will also help in effect- 
ing greater cooperation between 
the humanities and other univer- 
sity disciplines. 

As a liaison officer between na- 
tional educational organizatbns 
and the University's faculty, he 
will report periodically to the lat- 
ter on national trends in higher 
education. In addition to other 
duties, he will continue to teach 
advanced courses in the English 

Dr. Goldberg, who for the past 
eight years has been executive di- 
rector of the Humanities Center 
for Liberal Education, received a 
bachelor of science degree from 
the University of Massachusetts 
and his doctorate from Yale Uni- 

versity. After joining the faculty 
at Massachusetts in 1928, he was 
appointed head of the English de- 
partment in 1955. 

For ten years prior to 1960, 
he was executive director of the 
College English Association, a na- 
tional organization for the ad- 
vancement of college teaching of 

Dr. Goldberg is a member of 
the Executive Committee of the 
Association for Higher Education 
and has served on its committee 
on General Education. He is also 
a member of the Committee on 
Industry and Higher Education of 
the American Council on Educa- 

Author of many articles in var- 
ious fields. Dr. Goldberg was re- 
cently selected as the American

height of a fight that ended in 
pay raises for the university 
faculty. Mather fought for the 
UM withoyt restraint and in hia 
administration saw millions ob- 
tained for new construction and 
expansion of the university in 
Amherst. He gained the freedom 
bill whicli gave the trustees 
greater ability in obtaining and 
retaining a fine faculty. 

The choice of Lederle was un- 
animous, according to a board 
member. Earlier the trustees in- 
terviewed eight candidates who 
had been selected from more than 
a hundred possible choices from 
al! over the United States. 

UM trustee board chairman 
Frank L. Boyden of Deerfield 
said Dr. Lederle is expected to 
assume his new duties late in 
September. He termed Lederle 
"both a distinguished scholar and 
a skilled and experienced admin- 
istrator. He comes to us after a 
long period of service at the Uni- 
versity of Michigan, one of the 
great public insitutions of higher 
learning in the United States." 

Dr. Boyden said he wierhed to 
express his gratitude to Gov. Fur- 
colo for his aid in recruiting a 
new president and to members of 
the Legislature of both parties 
for their "^bipartisan support of 
the salary increase which was so 
vital if men of high caliber were 
to be attracted to the presidency. 
Such support from the leaders of 
state government assures Mas- 
sachusetts of an outstanding 
position in the field of public 
higher education.

AFROTC Airs New Program For Cadets 

A revised curriculum awaits 
Basic and Advanced Air ROTC 
cadets at the University of 
Massachusetts according to Dr. 
Shannon McCune, Provost of 
the University and Director of 
the Division of Military and Air 


The new program eliminates 
Air Science classroom work dur- 
ing the first semester of the 
freshman year and during the 
second semester of the sopho-

natural sciences, ma'.hematics. 

Dean Fred Cahill Resigns; 
Shute Named Acting Head 

Gets New Post 

A loss to the University was 
sustained recently when Fred V. 
Cahill, Jr., Dean of the College 
of Arts and Sciences, resigned to 
become Dean of the School of 
General Studies at North Caro- 
lina State College. 

In commenting on the resigna- 
tion of Dean Cahill, the Provost 
stated: "The University of Mas- 
sachusetts has suffered a very 
real loss in Dean Cahill's leaving. 
During the five years of his 
vigorous leadership as Dean, the 
College of Arts and Sciences has 
made sigrnificant progress in the 
development of curricula and 
programs of high academic 
quality. His advice and counsel 
have been very helpful in the 
development of the total Univer- 
sity. I have, particularly, been

required for an undergraduate

Science subjects previously cov- 
ered during these terms are con-

the alternate semesters. 

In addition to completing the 
required classroom work, the Ba- 
sic Air Science student attends

The curriculum change in the

States Air Force ?nd the Uni-

mined that the substance of sev- 
eral advanced Air Science 
courses closely paralleled cour- 
ses offered by the University in 
the humanities and social 
sciences. The change will allow 
students to fulfill the ever-in- 
creasing requirements of many 
science and engineering courses 
and still enable them to better 
prepare themselves for military

Hi, there! I'm the friendly editorial writer that 
writes friendly editorials to greet the Freshmen in 
a friendly manner. This is one of those chummy 
little messages designed for consumption by that 
happy little group. By noir all you Freshmen must 
be well aware what a message to the Freshmen is. 
It, I am referring to a message to the Freshmen, 
is a speech, letter, note, epistle, encyclical, bull, or 
whatever you may wish to call it, that runs to about 
six thousand words of no more than two syllables 
each, that, unless the author has fouled up, has 
nothing to say. 

This is one of them there things. Read it care- 
fully. There are very few words of more than two 
syllables. And, keeping to tradition, which has to 
be mentioned, it has nothing to say. But this cheery 
little note will not run to six, or so, thousand words. 
Nor will it offer the same maudlin greetings of wel- 
come aboard and all that jaze. 

In fact, there are only 193 words in this piece. 
And as far a greeting. It wouldn't have been half 
so crowded if you had all stayed home. 


In attempting to answer the question 
"what is a student?" we encounter the dan- 
ger of looking for the answer of examining 
masses of students as they are presented to 
us in every day life. Here we become in- 
volved in a web of endless characterization 
which can only lead us to fruitless despair 
and never to even the possibility of a con- 
clusive statement. 

More fruitful, perhaps, it would be to 
look at the word "student" and analyze its 
meaning in terms of the individual human 
being. A student, of course, is one who 
studies, or more accurately, perhaps, one 
who is committed to study. Involved in such 
a commitment is an admission that one does 
not know all there is to know about reality, 
but that one can apprehend and make a part 
of oneself aspects of reality hitherto un- 
known. Involved more basically, perhaps, in 
the commitment is an asumption that there 
is a reality outside of oneself, and that this 
reality can be apprehended by the mind. 

More specifically, an individual who en- 
ters the classroom system of education, com- 
mits himself to the concept that he is cap- 
able of being taught by another human be- 
ing and also acknowledges that this human 
being may be able to give him insight into 
the tecjiniques of grasping aspects of reality. 
Reducted to a basic definition, this is 
svhat is meant by the word "student" and 
the individual who* says "I am a student" 
must be prepared to fulfill the commitments 
he made when he assumed that title. 

Care should be taken against synthesiz- 
ing a criterion of behavior from what one 
observes in other individual students. Each 
individual student takes upon himself the 
responsibility for what kind of student he is 
or will be. No attempt should be made to 
deny responsibility for behavior merely be- 
cause it is observed in others. Ultimately 
each student, and more significantly, each 
individual will create for himself a defini- 
tion uniquely his own, and ultimately, he 
must stand or fall on his own creation. 

In A Very Minor Key 

To all freshmen— welcome. And to all upper- 
classmen, don't tell me you forgot your wading 
boots again. You KNEW the mud would be here — it 
was here when we left last spring. All they've done 
is move some of it around. 

This edition of the Collegian is being published 
at this time for a number of reasons, not the least 
of which is our feeling of public service. We want 
you to have something to read as you stand in line 
in the Bookstore, at the Commons, and divers and 
sundry other places too numerous to mention. After 
you've read it, it rolls up to make a handy^fly- 
swatter. Also tears easily for making paperdolls, 
and as a last resort, will provide ammunition for 
spitball fights. 

Enough for this rubbish. It is fall, classes have 
not yet begun, and we all know we are here to 
STUDY. Buckle down, get to work, nose to the 
grindstone and all that — Rubbish continues after 
this enthusiasm has worn off. 



(Poet and professor of Columbia University in an ad- 
dress at the inauguration of President Richard Glenn Get- 
tell of Mount Holyoke College.) 

The words of a teacher bear so many responsibilities 
that if all of them were ever present in his mind together he 
would grow as silent as the grave. 

The teacher's responsibility to the student is so huge 
and heavy a thing that no teacher in his right mind con- 
siders it at all. No good teacher, I mean. For a good teacher 
bias had the experience of learning that his words have an 
effect upon those who sit before him : an effect . . . that will 
endure for decades . . . 

But if he commenced each of his classes by wondering 
what future actions or thoughts were going to be the re- 
sult of what he said, if he asked himself seriously what 
characters he was going to shape, if ever so oddly or so 
little, he might be terrified before he spoke one word. Nor- 
mally he is blessed with a healthy indifference to such con- 
siderations. He is concerned with what he is going to say, 
and with whether or not it is true. 

I scarcely need to explain that the kind of teacher I 
have in view is the kind for whom the subject was created. 
It is his subject; he spends his life thinking about it, wheth- 
er in or out of class; it is his second if not his first nature; 
it is what gives him joy. No student ever fails to be aware 
of this. 

A teacher can fool his colleagues; he may even fool 
his president; but he never fools his students. They know 
when he loves his subject and when he does not. 

They may think such love to be a queer thing, and they 
may resolve never to fall victim to it themselves ; but their 
respect for it will never cease. And respect for a subject, 
like respect for an idea, is the beginning of wisdom . . . 

The teacher's responsibility to his subject is so serious a^ 
thing that it of course precludes anything like a parade of 
personality for its own sake. The good teacher is not trying 
to be a personality ; he is trying to be a person who under- 
stands his subject and sinks himself into it. If he could, he 
would disappear there altogether. 

The whimsical teacher — who cares only to impress his 
brilliance upon his class, or to deliver himself of eccentric 
opinions in the belief that such opinions are more interest- 
ing than the knowledge would be — is immemorially con- 
temptible. His students may like him for a while, but in the 
end they despise him for his condescension to his subject. 

The subject is a third thing that transcends both the 
teacher and the student. It is what the students should 
contemplate. It is the only live thing in the room. 

The truly personal teacher is the most responsible to 
his subject. Because he knows it to be more important than 
himself, he is humble in its presence, and would rather die 
than misrepresent it. It existed before him, and will exist 
after him . . . 

All men know the same things, or the same thing: the 
same world. One might think it easy to do this, but it is so 
diflficult that only a few succeed. We call them great men 
and women. 

What, for instance, is a great poet? One who sees what 
nobody else does? The contrary is surely true. If Shakes- 
peare is the greatest poet, or Homer, or Dante . . . the rea- 
son is not that he saw what nobody ever saw before; he 
saw what everyone has seen, but with a clarity, intensity, 
and finally, a humility which makes his subject even more 
interesting to us than he is. 

It was more interesting to him than his own self ever 
was ; which is why we know so little about him, and why we 
know so much about the stories he told, the people he under- 
stood . . . 

So what shall we say of a teacher who makes his stu- 
dents hate Shakespeare? We shall say first of all that the 
teacher must have hated Shakespeare too. He only thought 
he loved him or worse yet, he pretended that he did . , . 

The good teacher means it when he says he hopes his 
students will forget him. He never means, of course, that he 
hopes they will forget the subject. For him that would be 
tragedy ; it would mean that he himself had not existed. 

The responsibilities of the teacher are many and yet 
one. They are to himself, to his subject, to his students, to 
society, and to the truth . . , 


To the Editor: 

Due to last year's controversy concerning our 
organization, we, the members of the Maroon Key 
have been striving to better ourselve? for the bene- 
fit of the University of Massachusetts and the other 
honorary societies which exist here on campus. We 
realize that the selection of the Keys was n<»t con- 
ducted in a manner proper to democratic theory 
and equal rights for all. However, the fact remains: 
we did not select ourselves. 

Recognizing the inadequacies which existed last 
year, we have proceeded to change the constitution 
and a new method for selection of members has 
been instituted. This method raises the standard of 
the potential Key academically and discounts any 
political questions such as fraternity affiliation. The 
present Tnembers sincerely feel that this method is 
a fair and proper system of selection. 

Since controversy also existed on the merits of 
our present membership, we have taken steps to 
better the organization in that direction. Several 
members have resigned and our present member- 
ship meets the standards implicit in the present 
constitution. All members have the required average 
ami no member is on disciplinary probation as of 
12 September 1960. 

Our officers and executive committee have 
worked hard thus far to renew the status of the 
organization, and they will continue to do so in the 
direction of serving our university in an enlarged 
area. This year the New England Key Convention 
will be held here at the University, and we will do 
our utmost to make it the best convention ever. 
With some spirit and cooperation from our fellow 
schoolmates and especially, classmates, we can 
develop the Maroon Key into a true honorary or- 
ganization and an example which the other honor- 
ary groups on campus can follow.

of Mademoiselle. 

To try out for membership on the College Board 
a girl may write a criticism (1200 words or more) 
of the editorial section of a current issue of Made- 
moiselle or depict in words or drawings the follies 
of her campus. (For other suggestions write to the 
magazine.) You will be notified by January 1, 1961 
whether your tryout has been accepted. 

Each College Board member will do one assign- 
ment for Mademoiselle. The list of assignments to 
choose from will appear in the January issue of 
Madenwiselle. There will be a variety of selections, 
so a girl will be able to pick one that best suits her 
interests. (Prizes will be given for best tryouts and 

College Board members who come out among the 
top twenty on the tryout and assignment win a 
salaried month (June) in New York as Guest Edi- 
tors on the staff of Mndemmavlle. Besides working 
as apprentices to Mademoiselle editors, Guest Edi- 
tors will be featured in the August issue, and will 
represent the college girl in editorial meetings held 
to plan articles and fashions for forthcoming issues 
of the magazine. 

November 30 is the deadline for submitting the 
tryout assignment. For more detailed information,

New Honors System For All 
Classes Begins This Year 

Beginning this fall, the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts will in- 
augurate a new university-wide 
honors system, embracing vail 
levels and classes of the campus, 
it was announced recently by Dr. 
Shannon McCune, Provost of the 

The program, ranging from 
the junior year of secondary 
school to the beginning of grad- 
uate study, will operate in all 
colleges and schools of the Uni- 
versity and will provide a varie- 
ty of approaches by which ex- 
ceptional students may avail 
themselves of stimulating edu- 
cational opportunities beyond 
those normally encountered in 
the regular four-year course. 



In the early-admission phase 
of the program, the University 
will consider applications for 
admission to its freshman class 
from students of high standing 
who have completed their junior 
year of high school. Students 
accepted are invited to eni-oll in 
the summer sessions, after 
whidh they may continue at the 
University in the fall or return 
to secondary school to complete 
their second year before re-en- 
rolling with advanced credit for 

their previous summer's work. 

In addition, the University 
will grant advanced standing 
and college credit to entering 
students who have successfully 
completed certain college-level 
courses in their secondary 
schools as a part of the College 
Entrance Examination Board Ad- 
vanced Placement Program. The 
students are granted academic 
credit for the courses which they 
have by-passed. Undergraduate 
requirements and prerequisites 
for advanced courses will be 
waived for students who can 
prove thi-ough tests their pro- 
ficiency in the skills and subject 
matter of the course to be 

According to Louis S. Green- 
baum, professor of history and 
Director of Honors at the Uni- 
versity, up to 10% of the fresh- 
man class and 15% of the sopho- 
more class may be designated as 
Dean's Scholars. Students can at- 
tain this honor on the basis of 
their performance in secondary 
school, results in aptitude and 
achievement examinations, and 
their standing at the end of their 
first semester or year of college 
work. In addition, Dean's Scho- 
lars will have extended to them 
a number of pri\nieges impossible 
to be given to the entire student

students to pursue a course of 
independent study and research 
culminating in a thesis or other 
creative work consistent with the 
field of specialization. These 
students have the privilege of en- 
rolling in coursos normally 
limited to graduate students.

"Although I am a member of 
the board of trustees (ex-offi-

Chamber of Commerce announced 

It will run weekends, leaving 
each terminal every twenty min- 
utes. Fridays the bus service will 
begin at 3:10 p.m. at the uni- 
versity and the final run from 
there will be at 7:50 p.m. Sat- 
urdays the times will be 1:10 and 
5:50 p.m. respectively. The bus 
will not run during vacations. 

This year there will be a 
charge of 5 cents a ride. The 
cost of running the bus has com- 
pelled those who have backed the 
project to find some financial 
relief, the Chamber said. The bus 
service is provided by some of 
the business firms at the center of 
Amherst who are much interested 
in having the students at the 
University take advantage of 
Amherst facilities. They beliere 
this arrangement will be of mu- 
tual advantage. 

Last year over 22,000 rides 
were taken on the weekend bus. 
Many times the bus was full to 
overflowing. The Amherst Cham-

Ten Day 
Rule Set 

An important academic regula- 
tion concerning course withdrawal 
was passed by the Faculty Sen- 
ate last Spring. 

The rule stipulates that a stu- 
dent may withdraw from a course 
without a mark on his record 
provided he does so within ten 
calendar days after the first day 
of classes. A course dropped af- 
ter this period (during which a 
new course may also be added to 
the schedule) will receive a mark 
of F and will be recorded WF 
(withdrew failing). This grade 
will be computed in the quality 
point average. 

More information on this and 
similar regulations can be found 
on page 15 of the Handbook. 

Applications for admission to 
the University of Massachusetts 
have exceeded last year's number 
by almost 20 per cent, according 
to. Dr. Shannon McCune, provost 
of the University. 

Freshman applications for ad- 
mission totalled 6,039 this year, 
as against 5,162 for last year. 
Dr. McCune explained that the 
University figures are based on 
bona fide requests for admission 
involving the submission of com- 
pletely filled out application 
forms to the University regis- 
trar. General inquiries about ad- 
mission to the University are 
much greater in number, but 
these are not considered as of- 
ficial applications. 

Dr. McCune said that of the 
more than 6,000 applicants, 2,886 
were accepted for entrance as 
freshmen. Of this number 1750 
will actually be admitted in the 

It was pointed out that col- 
leges always accept moro than 
they can admit because potential 
entrants invariably apply to a 
number of other schools and are 

free to choose any one which ac- 
cepts them. Admissions officers 
find that they must therefore ac- 
cept more than their institutions 
can accommodate, going on the 
assumption that a certain per- 
centage of those accepted will en- 
ter other schools. There are also 
some who find they cannot enter 
because of financial difficulties. 

In addition to the 2,886 ap- 
plicants accepted, 950 other sec- 
ondary school graduates were 
placed on the waiting list. Addi- 
tional applications this year in- 
cluded 643 from students seeking 
to transfer from other institu- 
tions. This figure was approxi- 
mately the same as last year's. 

University officials said that 
no application forms were sent 
out after May 1, though there 
were numerous requests for 
them. It was pointed out that 
since there were so many appli- 
cants prior to that date, admis- 
sions officers could not encour- 
age late applicants in any way 
and were forced to tell the latter 
that no further applications 
could be processed.

Increased Participation Of 
Dorms To Highlight Drive 

It is the purpose of the Intra- 
murals Department at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts to pro- 
vide a broad pattern of organ- 
ized recreational activities to at- 
tract the leisure time pursuits of 
the student body. 

One major j^oal of the Physi- 
cal Education Department for 
this year is to expand the Intra- 
mural sports program on campus. 
As Provost Shannon McCuno 
puts it: "A student's life at the 
University can be devottni solely 
to intellectual pursuits, but the 
result may be a warped rather 
than a full life. Therefore, stu- 
dents are urged to take part in 
. . . the intramural program." 
New Intramural Program 
In line with this })olicy, Mr. 
Justin L. Cobb, Director of In- 
traTnurals, has devised a new 
program for the increased par- 
ticipation in intramurals of dor- 
mitories and independent teams. 
According to Coach Cobb, due 
to the efforts of the IFC and 
because of the sense of purpose 
that pervades fraternity life, 
there always is a fine host of 
fraternity team.s in intramurals. 
Dormitories ran and should 
have a purpose and a unity simi- 
lar to that of the fraternities. of the relatively small 
percentage of male students in 
fraternities, the key to the en- 
joyment of life on campus is the 
development of "esprit de corps" 
in the dorms. 

It is also Coach Cobb's belief 
that identity with the dorms, 
similar to the identity of broth- 
ers to their fraternities, is the 
key to the disciplinary problem 
on campus. The denial of certain 
varied activities to students and 
the pressure upon students to 
behave requires an outlet for the 
energies of the students. This 
outlet could be found in intra- 

The aim of the Department of 
Intramurals is ultimately to 
have 40 to .'>0 per cent of the 
male student body participating 
in the activities. 

There are two ways to realize 
this aim: either by increasing 
the opportunities to participate, 
or by increasing the activities in 
which to participate. 

Intramural Athletic Council 
The "Physical Education de- 
partment has taken great strides 
to ameliorate both of these con- 

First of all, there is the de- 
velopment of the Intramural 
Athletic Council. The council is 
composed of (1) The Director of 
Intramurals (Coach Cobb), (2) 
The Senior Supervisor or Chair- 
man (Bon Fernandez), (3) The 
Junior Supervisor (Charlie La- 
Pier), (4) Sophomore Supervisor 
(to be named), (5) The IFC 
Athletic Chairman (Dick Eger), 

(6) A Dormitory representative 
chosen by the Dean of Men, and 

(7) The Intramural Editor of the 

This council .shall interpret 
and enforce the rulos, make ad- 
ditions and changes when neces- 
sary, rule on protests, develop a 
system of apfiropriate awards 

and in general advise the direc- 

In addition to the Council, 
several new sports are being 
organized on the intramural 
level. Besides the traditional 
team sports of touch football, 
basketball, and softball, it is 
hoped that th,s year volleyball, 
lacrosse, swimming, and the in- 
dividual sports of weight lifting, 
wrestling and tennis can be 
added to the intramural roster. 

The number of sports played 
depends entirely upon student 
interest and participation in in- 

New Point System 

To increase this student in- 
terest, an elaborate point system 
has been set up. This point 
system is distijjctly separate 
from the IFC point system and 
applies to all teams playing in 
intramurals, whether they be 
dorm, fraternity, or independent. 

Victories in the various sports 
would earn points throughout the 
year. At the end of the year, 
whichever dorm, fraternity, or 
independent team had garnered 
the most points would be 

awarded a trophy, to be called 
the Stephen Davis Award. 

This then is the ultimate objec- 
tive of the expanded program. 
The Davis trophy is a heaui.ful 
one and a proud addition to the 
trophy room of any dorm or 

But in order to give the trophy 
the prestige it deserves, there 
must be increased participation 
in intramural sports. The frater- 
nities have always been strong 
in intramurals, but now the 
dorms must join in. 

In order to do that, the dorms elect able and sincere 
athletic chairmen who will -or- 
ganize the various teams and co- 
operate with the Intramural 
Athletic Council. 

Also needed are competent 
officials. Anyone wishing to apply 
for a position officiating any of 
the sports, should apply to Mr. 
Cobb in Room lOA of the Cage. 

This year and following years 
can be more enjoyable to every- 
one by increasing intramural 
activities. It is up to you, the 
students, to accomplish that in-

Senator Flanders Inaugurates 
Political Discussion Series 

T^ /^ w-v . __ . 


Former Senator Ralph Flan 
dor.s (R-Vt.) made his first 
classroom appearance yesterday, 
in Machnier Hall. Ho is the 
first one to appear here in the 
Ford Foundation's $80,000 pro- 
gram offering politicans as class- 
room instructors, and weekly 
di.scussion sessions for the en- 
tire sturent body. 

Flanders will hold his first 
of the discussions on the com- 
ing eloction at 4 p.m. today in 
the Council Chambers. 

Prof. George Goodwin, who 
has just returned from a sab- 
batical leave, introduced the Sen- 
ator to the Class, Government 

He described the senator as 
a man who has gained an ex- 
cellent liberal education although 
he lacks a college degree. "He 
is better read than most profes- 
sors," Goodwin said. 

Flanders was president of the 
Boston Federal Reserve Bank 
from 1944 to 1946. He has rep- 
resented Vermont in the Senate 
from that time until 1958.

According to Goodwin, former 
Governor Dennis J. Roberts 
(D-RI) will paiticipate in the 
Ford Foundation's program in the 
spring, if he loses in the Sept. 28

pher DelSesto. 

The University is the second 
.«chool in the nation to have such 
a program. Rutgers University 
was the first. It is hoped that 
these discussions will enable fu- 
ture voters to better understand 
the political issues and thereby 
be better able to choose the most 
capable candidate. 

Asked what he thought of the 
University, Flanders replied, "Ex- 
cept for the fact that I received 
a parking ticket in the first half 
hour here. I like it fine." 

Three Campus 
Call For More 

An uigent plea for help was 
issued yesterday by the heads of 
three of the campus' largest or- 
ganizations, radio station 
WMUA, the yearbook, Index, and 
the newspaper, the Collegian. 

Bradley Rohrer, '61 station 
manager of the student voice of 
the University, appealed for an- 
nouncers, engineers, technicians, 
and record librarians. Rohrer 
said that people with public 
speaking experience and people 
who have operated ham radios 
are preferred for the announcers 
and technicians, but indicated 
the inexperienced would be 
trained for the radio station, 

Hugh Calkin, '61, editor of the 
Index, asked for students with 
or without experience in all types

of yearbook work, but indicated 
he was particularly pressed for 

The Collegian is also particu- 
larly pressed for photographers, 
according to Larry Rayner, edi- 
tor of the newspaper. He said 
the staff needed upperclassmen 
to fill posts in the editorial, news, 
and sports departments, but 
added that on-the-job training 
would be given to any freshmen 
who are interested. "We need 
about 50 reporters to compe- 
tently cover the campus," Rayner 

WMUA offices are in the base- 
ment of the Engineering Build- 
ing, and the Index and Collegian 
offices are on the second f^oor of 
the S.U.

C.A. To Hold 
Annual Picnic 
For Freshmen 

The Christian A.ssociation will 
hold its annual picnic to welcome 
freshmen next Sunday, Septem- 
ber 18 at 4:00 p.m. It will be held 
on the lawn of the Women's 
Physical Education Building. In of rain, the picnic will move 
inside of the building. Supper 
will be served at the cost of 50c. 
Tickets may be bought in the 
Christian A.ssociation Office on 
the second floor of the Student 
Union as well as in the dorms. 

Many events which have be- 
come traditional to the picnic will 
again take place. There will be 
games, including the famous 
"Picnic Pickups", entertainment 
by leading campus personalities, 
and singing. In addition, the of- 
ficers of the Christian Associa- 
tion will be stationed at various 
points of the picnic area to ex- 
plain to interested freshmen their 
phase of the work. There will be 
an opportunity to sign up to par- 
ticipate in some of the projects 
and events. Among opportunities 
available include volunteers to 
work with mentally retarded chil- 
dren, writers for the C A. news- 
letter, students to work on de- 
putation teams which visit high 
school church youth groups, sec- 
retaries to work in the C.A. of- 
fice, participants for weekend 
workcamps, volunteers for 
work at the Northampton mental 
hospitals, people to plan and 
lead worship, and assistants for 
work in publicity.

Senate Plans First 
Elections October 4 

The Elections Committee of the 
Student Senate today announced 
the dates for the first election of 
the year. This election will include 
the election of representatives to 
the Senate from the dorms, fra- 
ternities, sororities, and commu- 
ters. An added feature will be 
the election of one member from 
each of the three upper classes to 
the Student Union Governing 
Board due to a change in the con- 
stitution of that body which now 
provides for elected as well as 
appointed membeiship. 

Nomination papers will be 
available in the Dean of Men's Of. 
fice starting on Thursday Septem- 
ber. 22 and continuing through 
Thursday, September 29, at which 

time they must be returned to the

ber 30 a briefing session for all 
those whose names were placed 
in nomination will be conducted 
by Pres. Dennis Twohig of the 
Senate, and Senate Elections 
Committee Chairman Bill Knowl- 
ton in the Student Union. All 
nominees must attend, the time 
and place will be Announced. 

The election will be held on

Senator Flanders' Visit 

Is A Mark Of Achievement 

The University is quite fortunate to have former Ver- 
mont Senator Ralph Flanders on campus discussing the 
presidential election campaign. His many years as a public 
administrator under Roosevelt and as a Senator for twelve 
years should enable him to give the students in the Gov- 
ernment 93 class and the campus at large some very inter- 
esting insights into behind-the-scenes politics. 

Mo7'e significant than Mr. Flanders* appearances, how- 
ever, is the fact that the Ford Foundation ivas willing to 
give the school a grant in excess of $80,000. for a program 
of this nature. 

Massachusetts is the second school to receive such a 
grant from the Foundation, Rutgers University being the 
the first. The award is an indication of how far the Univer- 
sity has come in raising its educational standards. It is a 
recognition of the outstanding government department we 
have. Certainly the head of the department, Prof. John S. 
Harris, is to be congratulated for the job he has done. 

Attracting the interest of such a large organization 
takes more than an outstanding department. It takes weU- 
known, qualified administrators, such cw Provost Shannon 
McCune. It was he who attracted the Ford Foundation's in- 
terest by planning such a program,. Only after Mr. McCune 
had arranged to have the senator come here did the Foun- 
dation decide to award the grant. We owe our deepest 
thanks to the provost for a job well done. 

The Provost Remains 

...For Now 

Everybody should know by now that we have a new 
University President, and, from first appearances, a very 
qualified President. Everybody also knows that Provost 
Shannon McCune, who was backed by the Collegian last 
year as the best man for the job, is not President. 

Mr. McCtine withdrew his candidacy on August 17 for 
the i^ost, and for a while it appeared as though he had de- 
cided to take another post. Fortunately for the university, 
this is not the case, at least for the time being. 

He has let it unoflficially be known that he does not 
plan to accept another position until at least February, prob- 
ably until June. 

Just as we have appreciated the fine work he has done 
as provost and acting president, we also appreciate the 
loyalty he shows in turning down a number of atti'active of- 
fers at other schools to remain one more year as the number 
two man. 

Probably the most popular administrator this school 
will ever see, he will continue to handle all the jobs involved 
in running the University. Most important, however, is the 
fact that he will be available to break in the new presi- 
dent. L.R. 



The rooming situation in the girls' dormitories this 
semester — is very interesting. In Knowlton, for instance, 
three or four freshmen are living in the commuters' room. 
In Crabtree the utility room is useful in more than one way. 
It sleeps freshmen. In Mary Lyon the gals must have some 
diflficulty using their kitchenette ; some girls are rooming in 
it. As of now there are no girls rooming in the date rooms 
or in the jons. 

Fortunately for the girls in these dormitories this situ- 
ation is expected to be relieved in two or three days. Miss 
Curtis, Dean of Women, and Miss Gonon, Assistant Dean 
of Women, are doing their best to remedy it. There are still 
very many girls in triples, however. They will have to wait 
until a sufl^cient number of students flunk out and thus pro- 
vide additional rooming space. S.W.M.

Deadline: ga„., Toaa., Than.— 4:00 p.m. I There cannot be much to fear in a country where 

"The Future of Western Civilization and of the 

free world, as well as the fate of peace, depend to a large extent upon the vigour, deter- 
mination and wisdom of American policy in the economic, political and defense fields. 
This is an almost crushing burden. 

A lot of people are being scared by the Russians 
into hardening up our education or speeding it up. 
I am interested in toning it up. 

"Since this overpowering responsibility involves 
much more than the fate of America, 'others' whose 
fate is involved have in ti-ying to 'see' America every 
right to express their opinion. I will therefore make 
six brief remarks. 

(1) I do not believe America is awakened enough 
to the great dangers of -the moment. It is not a 
simple thing that Communism has in forty years 
expanded to dominate practically one-third of the 
world and is still expanding. 

(2) I find a most disturbing sense of ease, com- 
fort and complacency. Material prosperity appears 
to have softened up the moral nerve. 

(3) It does not seem to me that the unity of 
purpose and policy between America and her allies 
and friends is firm or deep enough. 

(4) I do not understand how the wonderful sci- 
ence and technology of America has been caught 
napping by Soviet s<;ience and technology beating the 
West in rocket and missile development, nor why 
much greater efforts are not deployed to catch up 

A Walk With Robert Frost 

RoSert Frost, four times a Pulitzer Prize win- 
ner, is still, at 85, a practicing poet. He is working 
now on a book to be titled And All We Call Ameri- 

"Robert Frost's poems," writes critic Mark Van 
Doren, "are the work of a man who has never stopped 
exploring himself — or, if you like, America, or, better 
yet, the world." Americans, in taking Frost to their 
hearts, have proved that he does speak for them. The 
following thoughts are quoted from his conversation, 
lectures and poems: 

• * « 

Courage is the human virtue that counts most — 
courage to act on limited knowledge and insufficient 
evidence. That's all any of us have, so we must have 
the courage to go ahead and act on a hunch. It's the 
best we can do. 


The people I want to hear about are the people 
who take risks. 

I'll discuss anything. I like to go perhaps-ing 
around on all subjects. 

People have got to think. Thinking isn't to agree 
or disagree — that's voting. 

Education is turning things over in the mind. 

What is required is sight and insight — then you 
might add one more: excite. 


On the United States and its young people: 
We're like a rich father who wishes he knew how to 
give his sons the hardships that made him rich. 


You can be a rank insider as well as a rank out- 

I own I never really warmed 
To the reformer or reformed. 


There's doing good — that's sociology. There's also 
doing well— that's art. It's doing well that's import- 
ant. My little granddaughter said, "I think I would 
like to do good well." I let her have that one. 


As for rhyme and meter in poetry, I'd as soon 
write free verse as play tennis with the net down. 

The greatest thing in family life is to take a hint 
when a hint is intended — and not to take a hint 
when a hint isn't intended. 


If one by one we counted people out 
For the least sin, it wouldn't take us long 
To get so we had no one left to live with 
For to be social is to be forgiving. 

Poets like Shakespeare knew more about psychi- 
atry than any $25-an-hour man. 

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces 
Between stars — on stars where no human race is. 
I have it in me so much nearer home 
To scare myself with my own desert places. 


People keep saying it's not good to learn things 
by heart, but if you don't have things by heart, what 
are you going to have to think about when you lie 
awake and can't sleep at night? Pretty things that 
are well said — it's nice to have them in your head. 


Love is an irresistible desire 
To be irresistibly desired. 

with and surpass that development. It is now seven- 
teen months since the first sputnik and practically 
- every other month the Soviet Union jumps a new 
extraordinary feat upon the world. 

(5) I believe both for her security and for her 
economic prosperity America should develop a much 
bolder policy for helping the underdeveloped coun- 
tries to develop themselves. 

(6) Despite everything, this country will respond 
to the clarion call if it is adequately sounded in^ the 
service of freedom, justice and peace. It is all there- 
fore a matter of vigorous leadership."

With lifted brows and sharp, inquiring eyes the 
freshmen come upon the campus. Under a sea of 
beanies they converge in the Hatch, eagerly antici- 
pating their engraved champagne glasses newly 
purchased at the SU bookstore filled to the brim 
with champagne. But do not tell me that the 
thoughts of freshmen are frivolous. Certainly the 
embroidered "stem pillow" will come before the 
philosophy text, but we must not be too harsh on 
these young scholars. Perhaps the seed of intellect- 
uality has lain dormant through the summer and 
merely awaits the stimulus of "university atmos- 

"They all walk with such an excitingly springy 
step," says one professor to a colleague who re- 
plies, "These are undoubtedly the smartest young 
group of freshmen that I've ever encountered." 

Can it be true that these entering freshmen are 
an omen? Perhaps the intellectual climate will now 
reverberate electrically! Perhaps these new stu- 
dents will give us a new and vibrant academic kick, 
thrusting this university into a somewhat greater 
standing and national prominence. 

Perhaps . . . but wait. The brows that were high 
are lowering. Those sharp eyes are clouded and hazy. 
Those once vibrant strides are now slow, laboring 
paces. The academic hopes and aspirations seem 
now to be subordinate to a weary, grinding out 
of curricula. 

"I don't have time to run for the Student Senate." 

"Who's got the time to work on the CoUegianV* 

But for a small, hard core, intellectual vibrance 

goes a-glimmering. And the campus comfortably 

settles down to a deep, submissive sleep.

Tutorial Robots Move Into The Classroom 

The robots aren't coming to the 
nation's classrooms. They're 
here ! 

First, it's educational tele- 
vision — off and running. 

And now, butting into the 
school marm's business are new 
fangled things called teaching 

Plunk one on a student's desk 
and he can teach himself — going 
along at his own rate of speed. 

The mac'hine even gives tests 
on the current lesson before al- 
lowing the pupil to dial a new 

To worsen matters for a teach- 
er jittery about technological ad- 
vances in the academic world, the 
teaching machines have a hidden 

They don't lequire the students 
to do homework! 

All the wrinkles haven't been 
flattened by the experts engineer- 
ing the teaching machines, but 
the "homework free" devices are 
being used experimentally in 
dozens of classrooms. 

The most extensive use of the 
machines is in Roanoke, Va., 
classi-ooms. There, a major proj- 
ect recently was launched by En- 
cyclopedia Britannica Films and 
HoUins College. 

Maurice Mitchell, president of 
E.B.F., said in an interview that 
the teaching machines are more 
accurately called self-instruction 

But do they teach as well as 
a teacher? How do they "ork? 

"During the school year that 
ended in June," Mitchell said, "a 
class of 34 eighth grade pupils 
in a Roanoke school were given 
beginning high school algebra, a 
course ordinarily offered in the 
ninth grade. 

"The teaching was done by 
machines. The class finished the 
year-long course in half the 
usual time, with the students 
showing an excellent grasp of 
the material covered as indicated 
by national examination ma- 

"No lectures, classroom demon- 
stration, textbooks or home work 
were used." 

Mitchell said that in addition 
to taking the standard nation- 
wide achievement test in algebra, 
the students took a test the 
Roanoke teachers themselves de- 
vised. They passed the second 
test with excellent i-esults also. 

Similar experiments, are un- 
derway in the language subject 
areas, and the plan is to run the 

entire program of mathematics, 
language and other programmed 
subjects through two full aca- 
demic-year cycles of testing and 
polishing during the coming 

After the additional tests, the 
machines will be available to 
schools throughout the nation, 
Mitchell said. 

"Speedier progress through the 
years of mathematics and lan- 
guage study on the part of the 
student and a dramatic extension 
of the capabilities of the class- 
room teacher are expected to be 
the first and most significant re- 
sult of the widespread introduc- 
tion of teaching machines," 
Mitchell said. 

"Since the burden of the teach- 
ing is done by the machines and 
the student himself, the teacher 
is free to deal with individual 
students, and an enlargement of 
class size in these subjects seems 
entirely possible. 

"Classes of 100-150 students, 
supervised by a competent teach- 
er while they move through the 
process of self-instruction, are 
believed to be entirely feasible. 

"This may represent a major 
breakthrough in the field of

Greenbaum Stresses 
Academic Excellence 

On Friday morning, September 
9, 1960, Howard Shainheit open- 
ed the academic meeting by read- 
ing a selection from the S.W.A.P. 
Conference Synopsis. He par- 
ticularly stressed the statement 
concerning the lack of initiative 
among the students for scholastic 
achievement, and the lack of 
awaieness of the University's 
honor societies. An Honors Col- 
loquium, formed this year by Dr. 
Louis Simpson Greenbaum, was 
next discussed, and the meeting 
was turned over to Dr. Green- 
baum, who elaborated on his 
coming plans for the success of 
the colloquium. 

His main idea was to keep stu- 
dents alert regarding "academic 
excellence" by infonnal colloqiiia. 
Carefully selected students rep- 
resenting various departments on 
campus were invited by Dr. 
Greenbaum to participate in the 
Honors Colloquium, which con- 
sists of four small groups com- 
prised of ten men and women, 
each gioup presided over by two 
professors. Such themes as prob- 
ing into the depths of tragedy 
will be developed this year. Dr. 
Greenbaum feels, however, that 
some of the most essential prob- 
lems to be considered are geneial 
pj'oblems, such as man, money, 
etc. This new program will be- 
gin in September. It is hoped 

that every potential honor stu- 
dent may have a chance of join- 
ing the colloquium and meeting 
his own peers. In order for this 
to be a true success, there must 
be (1) eager participants chosen 
by their scholastic achievements, 
and 2) the colloquium must offer 
ci^dit points. Dr. Greenbaum 
firmly believes that the Honor 
Colloquium would be the most 
important accomplishment at the 
University. He considers educa- 
tion a tiaining of the mind; in 
othei- words, the ability to intel- 
ligently discuss social standards, 
politics, etc. Subject matter soon 
vanishes, but the colloquium 
would train the mind on its own 
terms — its own speed, require- 
ments, and demands. It was sug- 
gested that the professors in- 
volved in the colloquium should 
attend dormitory teas in order to 
arouse interest among the stu- 
dent body. 

Other subjects discussed at the 
meeting were 1) how to stimu- 
late a desire for intellectual 
achievement, 2) how to rescue 
those students who are potential- 
ly interested in scholastic 
achievement, and 3) how to make 
these students aware of self-de- 

Shainheit concluded the meet- 
ing by resolving to publicize the 
honor societies more this coming

Although fifteen letterme-n are 
returning to URI, the chief trou- 
ble spots which have plagued the 
Rams for the past few years, the 
ends, are still present along with 
the fact that the Rams will be 
without their YC selections, 
quarterback Roger Pearson and 

fullback Bill Poland. 

For the first time since 1956, 
New Hampshire will open its 
season without an experienced 
quarterback. Ace passer, Sam 
Paul, has graduated along with 
three other All Confejence per- 
formers. UNH also needs replace- 
ments to support a strong start- 
ing line, but has considerable 
speed and depth in the backfield. 

Vermont was hit by the loss 
of its entire backfield and several 
key linemen. The only thing 
keeping UVM's prospects from 
being, those of any rebuilding 
year is a forward wall which 
could be the finest at Vermont 
since the "Granite Seven" of '54. 

Buschman And Barrow To 
Lead Cross Country Squad 

Led by co-captions Harold Bar- 
row and Ralph Buschman, the 
U. of Mass. X-Country Team has 
started workouts in preparation 
for their first meet on Oct. 1 
with U. of Maine and North- 
eastern at Boston. 

Besides Barrow and Busch- 
mann, junior letter man Joe Lar- 
marre and sophomore Dave 
Balch are expected to form the 
nucleus of a strong team. 

Balch, whom Coach Footrick 

calls the best prospect he has seen 
at U. Mass., was unbeaten in 
dual meets as a freshman and 
finished fifth in the N.E. fresh- 
man meet. 

The squad: Harold Barrow*, 
Ralph Buschman*, Joseph Lar- 
marre*, Robert Avery, John 
Parker, Robert Trudeau, David 
Balch, Richard Blomstrom, Ken- 
neth O'Brien, John Hairington, 
Eugene Hasbrook, Alfred Lima.

JOHN Mccormick 

Leading Passer 

Two UMass gridmen were recently honored by DELL magazine 
in Its Tops m the East" poll. JOHN McCORMICK, a 6'1" junior 
quarterback was picked as one of the leading passers in the East 
while HARRY WH^LIFORD, a senior from Greenfield,;:^ chLn as' 
one of the best performing ends.

Soccer Squad Lacks Halfbacks 
As Coach Briggs Greets Seven 
Returning Lettermen This Week 

With the football season just a 
touchdown away you know that 
its cousin, soccer, can't be far 

Coach Larry Brings held his 
first workout Tuesday, with about 
eighteen men participating, the 
rest being delayed in the doctor's 
office getting their physicals. 

Coach Briggs figures this is 
about half his squad and already 
he could see signs of the spirit 
and morale that go far in pro- 
ducing a winoiing team. 

Seven Lettermen 

Seven returning lettermen 
would tend to discourage new- 
comers. On the contrary, Coach 
Briggs reports that virtually ev- 
ery position on the team is open. 

The returning lettermen include 
co-captains Hulip and Psilaukis. 
Coach Briggs rates Hulip an al- 
most certain starter at one of 
the fullback positions. Bill 
Hawes, Charley Repata, Bow 
Weeks, Nicholas Bazos, and 
Butch Worsh round out the list 
of those sporting a letter. 

The halfback positions which 
constitute the nucleus of any 
team, are the big holes presently 
causing coach Briggs his most 
concern. These vital positions re- 
quire the most conditioning and 

Needs Scorer 

Anullier important man the 
Redmen soccer team has lacked 
for the past four or five years 
is a big scorer: a person who ca-n 
be counted on to put that ball 
in the nets when properly set up. 
If coach Briggs can find this 
precious gem he will go far in 
bettering last year's 2-8 record. 

Another important position the 
coach has to fill is perhaps the 
hardest and the least rewarding 
and that is the manager. Anyone 


who would like to earn a soccer 
letter and at the same time gain 
a lot of self-satisfaction should 
see coach Briggs any time after 
3:30 down on the soccer .field, by 
the tennis courts. 

In a preliminary warm-up 
prior to their first game with 
Coast Guard Sept. 24, the team 
will scrimmage a group made up 
of Alumni, at three o'clock, Sat- 
urday, on the soccer field.

On Sports 


The Red Sox may have been 
in Cleveland while hurricane 
Donna was ravaging the East 
Coast, but Ted Williams didn't 
escape unharmed. Ted learned 
that his two-story home in Flo- 
rida was completely destroyed by 
the whirlwind female. "Nothing 
left but the walls," was the re- 
port, and many valuable trophies 
were lost. 

The bonus star of ths month- 
six-foot-four Mark Kuykendall 
recently revealed that he passed 
up $5000 extra rather than sign 
with the Red Sox. Kuykendall, 
only 17, plays several positions 
well, and might have become the 
solution to a few of the Sox' 
problems. But he signed with the 
Cubs for $75,000. Why "did he 
pass up the extra five grand? 
Ernie Banks is his idol. 
The Olympics brought in an 
unprecedented $5,^0,00 in gate 
and TV receipts, but the games 
fell short of their expense by 
nearly two million dollars. The 
Italian Olympic Committee isn't 
worried, though. The IOC collects 
18 million dollars a year in a soc- 
cer pool. The soccer season starts 
next week, and the brass figures 
to have the two million made up 
in a month. 


1. Rightfielder Babe Ruth hit 
60 homers and had 164 RBI's 
pacing the 1927 Yankees to the 
pennant by 19 games. Name the 
other two outfielders on that 
team. 2. This May, Pittsburgh's 
Dick Groat became the 34th big 
leaguer to get six hits in six at- 
bats in a nine inning game. Who 
was the last man to do it before 
Groat? 3. Here's a "Who Am 
I?". I played quarter back in the 
NFL for 12 seasons with the 
same club and once threw seven 

touchdown passes in one game. 
Who am I ? 

At this writiiig the Yankees 
are atop the American League 
by only a single game, fighting 
off the invasions of Baltimore 
and Chicago. This reporter is in- 
clined to believe that neither 
pursuer will catch the New York 
boys, and if the Yanks get to the 
World Series, they'll win that, 

Ex-Boston Brave Tony Cucci- 
nello 10 has a .750 victory per- 
centage as a pro team major 
league manager. Last year, when 
Al Lopez was sick, he achieved 
a 2-1 record. This year he is 1-0. 
That's some punkins.

The story of Hurricane Jack- 
son is one of the tragedies of 
the sports world. Three years 
ago he was a challenger for the 
world's heavyweight champion- 
ship. Floyd Patterson stopped 
him in the tenth round at the 
Polo Grounds. Jackson made 
$61,929 from that fight, a reason- 
able compensation for the in- 
juries he suffered. 

These days Jackson fights for 
nothirfg. He has continually ap- 
plied to the New York State 
Athletic Commission for a license 
to fight. Each time he has been 
turned down. Why? Because, in 
the opinion of medical experts, 
Tommy Jackson, at 28, physic- 
ally, has a mental age of twelve. 

So Hurricane, who once had a 
list of victories that would floor 
any promoter, will fight no more. 
The fellow who fought for box- 
ing's biggest title is still guided 
by innocent hope. He trains daily 
for a fight in his dreams.

teacher fihortages and swelling 
instructional costs." 

Mitchell said it is believed pos- 
sible to deliver an entire aca- 
deme year of subject-matter to 
the student's desk, in the form of 
a teaching machine, at a cost of 
about |10 per student. 

There are different kinds of 
teaching machines — but the 
basic operating principles vary 
little. By turning a dial or 
pressing a button, a student un- 
rolls the lesson for the moment. 

Say he's studying arithmetic. 
He doesn't just drill and memo- 
rize. He's taught to grasp the 
logical understanding of num- 
bers' relationships. For example, 
in the multiplication tables for 
nine, the machinery cards might 
add the information that nine 
times a number is the same as 

ten times the number — minus 
the number. 

At any rate, the material is 
presented, the student chews it 
over and then is tested on what 
the machine has taught him. 

He can't go on to the next 
lesson until he has demonstrated 
— to the machine — that he has 
grasped the principles presented 
in the lesson. 

The teaching machines have 
their roots in studies undertaken 
by experimental psychologists 
more than 30 years ago. 

They are based on the premise 
that the "tutorial system" — one 
teacher to one pupil — is logi- 
cally the best process for impart- 
ing knowledge and stimulating 
individual thinking in subject 
areas where the body of knowl- 
edge is a matter of general 
agreement — say mathematics, 
languages and the sciences.

Bands of Americans Work 
On Vacation to Help Others 

Cnited Press International 

Nearly 200 young Americans 
are "vacationing" this summer 
by building roads, churches and 
international relations. 

The Americans joined a thou- 
.«and youths of other countries a* 
volunteer work camps sponsored 
by the World Council of Churches 
in 31 countries. 

Working with boys and girls of 
other tongues and faiths, they'll 
plant trees, build roads, paint 
houses, care for refugee children 
and other needed services from 
Africa to Sweden. Besides con- 
tributing their time and muscle, 
they aLso pay their living expenses 
and transportation. 

The one-month camps give 
youths "the opportunity to ex- 
press their sense of responsibility 
by working with their hands to 
meet human need." the council 
explained. Over 10.000 have taken 
part since the program started in 

For the f^ time four African 
countries are part of the camping 

Vacationing student.s who or- 
dinarily might don a soda-jerkers 
cap for the summer instead are 
joining a road building crew in a 
village near Accra, Ghana. Others 
are turning their time to im- 
proving the water system of a 
village near Nairobi. Kenya: de- 
veloping an outdoor recreation 
area and building a road at Bula- 
wayo. Southern Rhodesia. 

Other studenL<: a long way 
from hometown jobs are joining 
in renovating .slum buildings in 
Gothenburg. Sweden; building a 
water reservoir dam on Kythera 
I.sland. Greece, and reconstruct- 
ing typhoon-damaged areas in 
Nagoya. Japan. 

Ninety-one of the Americans 
have signed up to donate their 
talent to projects in the United 
States — in Hawaii. Chicago. New 
York. St. Louis. Indianapolis and 
New Wind.sor, Md. Their work 
ranges from a .self-help housing 
program in Indianapolis to serv- 
ice in a St. Louis mental hospital. 

The volunteers, all between 19 
and 30 and repre.senting 
ant. Anglican and Orthodox reli- 
gions, not only will build with 
materials but with growing 
knowledge of each other.

point out that the presently- 
accepted classroom situation is 
essentially a compromise grow- 
ing out of the fact that there are 
many more students than tutors. 

"Ii poses serious problems for 
teachers and pupils and contrib- 
utes to a high rate of ineflficiency 
in the teaching-learning pio- 
cess," Mitchell said. 

"Teaching at the learning rate 
of the average student results in 
undereducating the gifted group 
and failure to meet the needs of 
students who, while learning at 
slower rate, are nevertheless cap- 
able of mastering most of the

a check. Some of the words are 
ingenious and .some even needed. 

For the most part, it's no .sale. 

One woman recently offered 
the word "hirs"' for consideration. 
She pointed out there is no pro-

And there was no sale either 
for the word •hydronics' al-

included in a college edition dic-

New Infirmary To Offer

use and many facilities which 
the school now lacks. Some of 
these are an X-ray room, a minor 
operating room, a laboratory and 
two solariums. Physiotherapy 
treatments will be available to 
both men and women instead of 
just to men as it is now. There 
will be three full time doctors at 
the new hospital and Dr. Cage 
hopes to add a psychiatrist to the 
medical staff. 

Dr. Gage says he has had the 
complete cooperation of the 
school's administration and ho 
hopes to clear up any gripes that 
the students have with the in- 
firmary. He has already had a 
talk with the women's house 
counselors and he wants to do 
the same with the men's house 
counselors. *'I want the students 
to bring any of their problems

Dean Hopkins Urges 
Presidents To Brag 

The Fraternity President's As- 
sembly met for their first meet- 
ing of the year Wednesday to 
formulate the role of the fra- 
ternities in campus activities this 

Dean Robert S. Hopkins, Jr. 
addressed the group at the open- 
ing of the meeting, stressing the 
need for the fraternities to 'Get 
off of the defensive." 

The Dean urged the fraternities 
to set up a system of public rela- 
tions, a method by which the acti- 
vities of the various houses could 
be publicized throughout the 
area. Many of the activities such 
as entertaining orphans, decorat- 
ing Amherst's parking meters at 
Christmas, and collecting for the 
Heart Fund in Amherst are not 
known to the people of Amherst 
or the students of the university, 
the Dean stated. The fraternities 
will grow in importance and in 
size as the university expands. 
The Dean, commenting on a plan 
to locate the fraternities in the 

Northeast corner of the campus, 
said, "I don't think this is goihg 
to happen. It would be a financial 
impossibility." Also among the 
Dean's comments was a request 
that the fraternities install an 
outside fire alarm to increase the 
effectiveness of their warning 

At the conclusion of the Dean's 
address, Collegian editor Larry 
Rayner outlined a plan that 
should increase fraternity cover- 
age in the campus newspaper. 
The plan tied in with the Dean's 
remark on public relations. 

The F.P.A. discussed rushing 
and agreed to study new activities 
that would make rushing more 
interesting for freshmen. Also 
opened to discussion was the pos- 
sibility of selling paper hats and 
balloons at the float parade on 
Homecoming Weekend, the money 
would be used to buy books for 
the library. The meeting closed 
after a decision was reached to 
continue the I.F.C. police force.

Auto Registration Planned 
For Monday And Tuesday 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

Dean Hopkins announces that 
car registration will take place 
next Monday and Tuesday Sep- 
tember 19 and 20, I960. The dis- 
patch dated September 14, tells 
all seniors, graduate students, 
special students, and teaching fel- 
lows wishing car registration to 
report to the South Parking lot 
Monday, between the hours of 7 
a.m. and' 5 p.m. All other eligible 
students are requested to report 
during the same hours on Tues- 
day. In the of inclement 
weather registration will take 
place the following days. South 
Parking Lot is located directly in 

front of the Curry Hicks Cage. 
All candidates will form two lines 
from west to east beside the sta- 
dium ticket office. Each car will 
be assigned to one parking lot 
by a window sticker. All unregis- 
tered cars will receive fines. The 
purpose of the registration is to 
provide space for all cars on 

Chief Blasko reports that all 
cars registered last year which 
are parking in unassigned lots 
will receive fines effective im- 
mwliately. Numerous cars with 
South Parking stickers are park- 
ing in the North lot and vice 
versa. .

Senate Meets 
To Discuss 
Future Plans 

The Student Senate got off to 
a slow start Wednesday evening 
as the first regular meeting of 
the year was called to order. 

Bill Knowlton, '61, chairman of 
the Elections Committee, an- 
nounced the dates for Senate 
nomination papers and coming 
elections. Nomination papers will 
be given out on September 22 and 
are due on September 29. An or-

bourne) was granted permission 
to bring up a motion for an ap- 
propriation of money for the 
Collegian for the purpose of pur- 
chasing three new cameras. This 
equipinent ' is badly needed, 
O'Leary said, because most of the 
cameras used last year were 
owned by members of the pho- 
tography staff who were gradu- 
ated in June. After some discus- 
sion, the motion was referred to 
the Finance Committee for con- 

Linda Achenbach '62 was ap- 
pointed to the SWAP Committee 
and Andy D Avanzo '63 was ap- 
pointed chairman of the Ad Hoc 
Budgets Committee by President 
Dennis Twohig '61. Twohig was 
appointed student representative

UMass Student 
Wins Nomination 

David Vigneault, '63, a govern- 
ment major, became the first 
UMass student in history Tuesday 
to be nominated for the State 
House of Representatives while 
still an undergraduate here. 

Vigneault, 24, was nominated 
out of a field of 16 candidates 
in his home town of Springfield. 
A Republican, he was nominated 
in a district that hasn't elected a 
Republican in over 30 years. His 
nomination, however, is viewed 
as assurance of election to the 
House in November. 

Vigneault's campaign caught 
the attention of the Springfield 

Daily Newn, which called him the 
"hotfoot campaigner" after a 
five-month person-to-person vote- 
getting effort. By his own esti- 
mation, Vigneault figures he visi- 
ted 10,000 of the 15,000 dwellings 
in the wards. Vigneault was as- 
sisted in his campaign by mem- 
bers of the T.K.E. chapters here 
and at American International 
College in Springfield, where 
Vigneault was enrolled before 
coming to UMass. 

Anticipating election to the 
House, Vigneault will continue 
his studies here in the fall se- 
mesters when the House is not in

Sigma Phi Epsilon Holds 
Open House This Sunday 

Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, 
9 Chestnut St., will hold an open 
house 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday in their 
new $105,000 house, it was an- 
nounced recently by President 
John A. Mitchell. 


All veteran students in train- 
ing under Public Law 550 must 
come at once to the Placement 
Office, South College, to All out 
a V.A. enrollment form if this 
was not done at registration 

Forty-two brothers are now 
living in the house, which was 
startcil last May, and has a seat- 
ing capacity of 85. 

Mitchell said a number of 
members of the faculty and ad- 
ministration as well as all sorori- 
ty members had been invited, 
and that all students with the 
exception of male freshmen stu- 
dents are invited to attend. Male 
frosh are prohibited by Interfra- 
ternity Council regulations from 
entering any fraternity house un- 
til next semester. 




The opening of another football season 
is at hand and the campus is anxiously await- 
ing the debut of Head Coach Charles Studley. 

Coach Studley has worked long and hard 
in his effort to bring UMass a winning foot- 
ball team. His introduction of spring foot- 
ball practices did not meet with the satisfac- 
tion of all persons, yet these practices are 
held by all of our opponents and are a neces- 
sary step on the road to a successful team. 

When the players reported for pre-season 
sessions in August, Studley again found him- 
self beset with problems. He found that his 
starting fullback would be out of action all 
season due to an injury; that his starting 
halfbacks had left school; and that other 
leading candidates would not be reporting. 

There was one bright spot, however. 
Those players that did return were in good 
shape. So Studley took what he had and made 
the most of it. He worked the team and him- 
self rigorously and the product of his work 
will be witnessed tomorrow and in the com- 
ing season. 

While Coach Studley and the new Red- 
men have given us reason to hope for better 
things this season, we should be careful not 
to place our hopes too high. A new team can- 
not be fashioned overnight. In most cases it 
takes three or four years to transform a 
losing team into a winning one. We sincere- 
ly hope and have good cause to believe that 
this season will be a winning one for UMass. 
But we cannot expect miracles. It is better 
for us to realize our capabilities now and 
merely hope for improvement than to pre- 
pare for impossible feats only to experience 
a big letdown. -— A.B. 


Flit In Our Food? 

To the Editor: 

I have read your paper and I think you should 
be commended for it. It is a good one. I also realize 
that it is a student paper, and probably you are not 
at all interested in some fogy on the faculty trying 
to get in his two cents worth. 

Anyway, what I was about to say was, I am 
pleased that you saw fit to use *The Good Teacher" 
by Mark Van Doren in your lead spot on the editorial 
page. I agree with Prof. Van Doren almost all the 
way, and I have already used your paper in my 
classes. So, thanks. 

Donald E. Hall 

Asst. Prof, of Education 

P.S.— I came on campus August 22 in order to get 
my courses set up and squared away. I often ate at 
the H|itch; it was handy and there was always lots 
of company. Not many students, but about two mil- 
lion flies. Now there are millions of each. Can't your 
paper bring some pressure to bear on this prob- 
lem and get rid of them? The flies, I mean. 


Editor's Note: 
Dear Mr. Hall: 

Boy! We sure wish to thank you for this com- 
ment ... a great boost to our ego. Sorry you're 
having trouble with the flies. Maybe Mr. Russell W. 
Colvin, Student Union Foods Manager, will take 
note and try to remedy this pesty problem with a 
Flit gun. About the millions of students, though— 
we feel this will have to be raf erred to the fresh- 
men selection section of the campus. 


The Iconoclast 


With our summer romances, dreams, addictions, and jobs having 
gone the way of the four winds, we must now settle down to the task 
remaining before us — "striving to sustain excellence," as our dearly 
departed, late President so nobly decreed as our goal , . . and here you 
thought people didn't partake of the forbidden fluid on this campus. 
Well, that just goes to show you that it is harder for a rich man to 
enter the kingdom of reality than for a white man to enter the Congo. 

With this opening column, perhaps we could postpone our susten- 
ance and review the past summer politically a bit. The Democratic 
convention opened with accusations by Harry Truman that Jack was 
too young for the nomination, after which Kennedy retaliated by nam- 
ing great men in history who achieved fame at an early age: Washing- 
ton, Jefferson, Lincoln, Leopold and Loeb, Bob Strom, Dondi and 
Billy Burkhardt (although not necessarily in that order.) 

At about that time, Ike's trip to Japan was cancelled because 
demonstrations made it evident that Dr. Shannon McCune (Kishi's 
Jim Haggerty) would not be able to control his followers. Two weeks 
later college students from all over the U.S.A. rioted at Newport, the 
scene of the annual jazz festival. While newspapers played it up as 
an exhibition of our youth's insecurities and jazz bawdiness, we all 
know that the affair was a demonstration against Ike and his in- 
tended visit to Newport the following week. 

Yes, it's been a busy summer for college students. But somehow 
whenever I picked up the newspaper and read of student riots in 
Japan, Newport, Korea, Turkey and Cuba, I couldn't help but feel a 
certain sensation of "belonging." Today, more than ever before, "to 
belong" is a very important thing. Look about you and observe the 
bewilderment in the faces of those people wandering in search of 
where they "belong" . . . like Eleanor Roosevelt was doing at the 
Democratic convention. 

The Democratic convention went off on schedule but left 'several 
questions unanswered. Can Frank Sinatra tear himself away from the 
nation's parking lot attendants in order to accept an ambassadorship 
to the Vatican ? If so, will Sammy Davis be appointed ambassador to 
Sweden in order to live with May's folks ? Speaking of May and Sam- 
my, the bookies in Las Vegas have released the odds as 9-6 that the 
kid will be polka-dot. 

At the Republican convention. President Eisenhower had to be 
introduced to the assembly . . . which gives you an idea of how little 
time he has spent in the U.S. this past year. For instance, when Nixon 
introduced Goldwater to Ike, the senator concluded the conversation 
with the words, "Well, it's been nice meeting you ... ah, er . . . fella. 
Look me up if you ever get to Washington, huh?" 

When LIFE and the New York TIMES reported the Congo kill- 
ings, raping, thievery, and other heinous crimes to the world, the U.S. 
cringed at the thought of such events. But I think we are too opinion- 
ated; after all, a fella has to have some kind of hobby. We in the 
States paint by numbers and they kill by numbers. While Ike ex- 
pressed concern over the Congo situation when he heard about it 
THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, Nixon voiced a note of optimism 
when he said, "As long as it doesn't interfere with the Phantom's 
Olympics . . ." 

And now with the summer behind us, we at the University may 
look forward to the future ... to the next few days when we'll once 
agam have a "great white father" for the White House on Baker 
Hill. For those frosh among you who are interested in extra-curricu- 
lar activities, you might try dropping by the Collegian office. Why just 
the other day two Smith College professors wandered into the office 
looking for a position on our photography depai-tment. But we lost 
their services in the end; seems the Thursday night movie committee 
scooped them up instead. 


Jniesop [Revisited 


Once upon a time, there was a king who, 
through some irony of fate, was born with a men- 
tality below that of normal. He had to be constantly 
accompanied by his courtiers and advisers lest he 
make some disastrous proclamation or otherwise 
bring calamity to his country. Such a state of af- 
fairs continued for many years, until one day the 
elders of the court decided that something had to 
be done at once to remedy the situation. 

They pondered long and hard, until at last the 
most erudite of them struck upon the idea to enlist 
the aid of a sorcerer — a weaver of spells. The old 
magician was brought to the court and agreed to 
And a cure for this pitiful monarch who could not 
even make and execute his own decisions. 

At last the potion was prepared and introduced 
into the goblet of wine which followed the ruler's 
evening meal. The courtiers retired and waited for 
the morn to witness the miraculous cure, for indeed 
a monarch incapable of making the simplest decis- 
ion was of no value to the land. 

Mom finally came,- and the king arose a new 
first official act was to dismiss his entire council of 
advisers; indeed he could now think for himself! 
For, in their haste, the eldei-s had given their king 
an overdose of the miraculous potion, and OVER- 
COMPENSATION for his faults was the result. 

Moral: An overcompensated fault often leads 
merely to another fault. 

A ludicrous tale, you say, and rather corny at 
that. But see the analogy: 

Great care is taken that students not place 
extracurricular work before their studies; students 
have been warned over and over as to the dangers 
of such a system. And, in their eagerness to avoid 
this deplorable condition, the students, by analogy, 
overcompensated . . . and deserted the University 
organizations completely, — or so it would seem from 
the dire need for help on the staffs of this campus' 
major organizations. 

WMUA, for example, at present has its studios* 
manned by a small crew of devoted station officers. 
The Collegian, also desperate for staff workers, has 
to print items such as this from lack of more 
capable and talented writers. Other major organi- 
zations, too, are suffering from the present lack of 

Contrary to popular opinion, the major offend- 
ers are not the freshmen ; many of them are already 
putting in more work than their study schedules 
should allow. The student body as a whole, mem- 
bers of all four classes, are exhibiting apathy toward 
their own campus organizations. 

We expect our newspaper to be delivered reg- 
ularly to our dormitories; we expect the radio sta- 
tion to be broadcasting when we turn on our seta; 
we expect to receive our copy of the Index each 
spring — yet no one is vnllrng to aseume the respon- 
Btbility of writing a newspaper, nmning a radio 
station, or compiling a yearbookt 

There's no excuse for such a lack of participa- 
tion; campus groups belong to all of ui. So don't 
hesitate another day; select your service and enlist.

throughout most of the game at Alumni Field, rallied for eight 
points in the third quarter and thirteen more in the final frame 
to clinch a UMass victory against the favored Bears. 

The end of the first half seemed to indicate a repeat perform- 
ance of other UMass elevens. Penalties and bad breaks gave the 
men from Orono a seven point lead at the end of the first half, 
a lead which was later stretched to 16-0. But in the exciting fin- 
ish it was a different story. 

Coach Chuck Studley has made many changes in the Redmen 
offensive and defensive alignments, and, with eleven lettermen 
returning for Maine, it promises to be a hard fought game. With 
John McCormick at ilie helm for the tribe, and an experienced line 
backing him up, the Massmen can be expected to exhibit a strong 
offensive game. Coach Studley is apprehensive about his defense, 
an apprehension which will meet its test tomorrow.

New ''Quarterback Club 
To Air Football Films 


The Student Union program 
council and Coach Chuck Studley 
have collaborated to bring to 
UMass students and faculty a new 
feature, The Quarterback Club. 

Every Tuesday at noon in the 
Ballroom a luncheon will take 
place at which films of the most 
recent football game will be 
shown. There will be a running 
commentary on the film by Coach 
Studley and several of the lead- 
ing players in the game. 

In addition, advanced scouting 
reports on the next opponent will 
be shown. 

The luncheon will be light ami 
will cost 85c. Students and faculty 
members are welcome, and things 
are planned so that the events 
will be over in time to make any 
1 :00 classes. 

Here is an unusual opportunity 
for Redmen fans to enjoy lunch 
and at the same time air their 
views on how they think the game 
should have been played. 

Tickets can be purchased at 
the Student Union Lobby Counter, 
and must be picked up before 
6:00 p.m. on the Monday pic- 
ceding the luncheon.

That was the headline on the 
front page of this paper, Monday, 
September 21, 1959. Rallying for 
21 points in the last half to over- 
come th« Bears' 16 point lead at 
halftime, the Massachusetts Red- 
men turned an apparent defeat 
into a glorious victory. 

There are high hopes among 
Coach Studley's crew that the 
Redmen will again turn the tables 
on the men from Orono. Although 
UMass is considered the under- 
dog by Dell Sports previews, it 
is hard to accept this prediction. 
Twenty lettermen will be back

Quest For Knowledge 

Spurs Educational TV 
On To Bigger Gains 

United Press International 

NEW YORK (UPI)— To many adults, educational television is 
a rare and appreciated chance to see and hear programs aimed at a 
mental age above 12. 

To others, it is an opportunity to do post-graduate studies or to 
mend the gaps in a fragmentary education. 

To increasing numbers of school and college-age youngsters it is 
an actual part of school and campus study, or a chance to obtain 
classes for credit at home. 

And to administrators of over-taxed educational institutions, 
educational television is offering more and more hope of increased 
efficiency in using to the utmost the abilities of able teachers. 

It can be a partial solution to crowded classrooms, lack of schools 
and the continuing Shortage of qualified teachers. 

The Federal Communications Commission began authorizing 
educational television stations in 1952. They now ^number 50 — and 
48 are affiliated with a national network, "National Educational 
Television," known to TV people as "NET," and operated on a non- 
profit basis. 

NET is not linked by wire for live broadcasts, but its affiliates 
all receive the same carefully-prepared video tapes on educational 
subjects to supplement their own projects, some of which, if deemed 
nationally interesting, are partially financed by NET and go into 
the exchange. 

Through its affiliated stations NET has a potential audience of 
about 70 million and estimates that some 2(^ million persons are 
regular viewers. It has an executive office in New York, but its ship- 
ping department and copying facilities are still in Ann Arbor, Mich., 
w'here it was born. 

NET deals exclusively with educational pix)grams covering sci- 
ence, the humanities, art, drama and public events, leaving classes 
for school or college credit entirely to the individual stations. It does, 
however, distribute such scholastic coui-se tapes between its affili- 
ates on request. 

A new organization, the "Learning Resources Institute," with 
headquarters in New York, has been formed to deal with college 
courses for credit. 

The institute estimates that during the 1958-59 school year, 569 
public school systems and 117 colleges and universities in America 
used television for direct instruction in regular courses involving 
more than 500,000 school children and 100,000 college students. 

Dr. John W. Taylor, fonner acting director of UNESCO, who is 
on temporary leave from his present post as director of Chicago's 
educational station WTTV to get the institute's program organized, 
said there is no doubt that TV classes are successful, efficient, needed 
and bound to increase. 

"Let's face it," he said in an interview, "there's no doubt about 
our population explosion. It has happened. It has doubled the num- 
ber of our students. We simply can't continue to educate by the old 
methods. We can't afford the old standard of one teacher to each 
20 to 25 students. 

"We can't get enough qualified teachers and we can't afford to 
pay them properly. Business and industry, which can afford to pay 
them, is taking our prospective young teachers away from us. We 
have got to find a way to increase the productivity of our teachers 
just as industry did with its workers. 

"We must completely reorganize our teaching concepts and meth- 
ods. It has been obvious for the past five or six years that teaching, 
for lecture and demonstration purposes, is just as good by TV as in 
the classroom. It is perfectly satisfactory for every subject that is 
taught by lecture and demonstration. 

"One teacher, instead of lecturing or demonstrating to 25 or 30 
students, can perform the same task for hundreds simultaneously. 
The time thus saved can be utilized for discussions, where needed, 
with small groups of the students, perhaps as few as three or four. 

"We have long since tried to give the teacher more time to teach 
by utilizing teacher's helpers for various tasks including the tedious 
chore of grading papers or, in the case of small children, helping 
them on and off with their coats. It certainly doesn't take a univer- 
sity degree to do this. Television is a step farther in the same direc- 

Educational TV, Taylor said, is even taking to the skies. In an 
experiment known as the "Midwest Program on Airborne Television 
Instruction," educational programs will be broadcast over two chan- 
nels from an airplane flying at a high altitude over north-central 

They will be receive<i on TV sets in classrooms of participating 
schools throughout an area including parts of six states: Illinois, In- 
diana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. 
No single ground antenna could do this.

Collegian Staff Reporter 

The Inter-Fraternity Council place. Alpha 
Trophy for the 1959-60 academic 
year was presented Thursday 
evening to James Early, presi- 
dent of Theta Chi, the winning 
fraternity, by Gordon Massing- 
ham '61, president of the Inter- 
Fraternity Council. This trophy 
is awarded annually to the fra- 
ternity taking first place in a 
year-long multifarious competi- 
tion. Among the factors consid- 
ered in determining the winning 
fraternity are sports, Greek 
Week events, and the academic 
achievement of the brothers as 
indicated by the house quality 
point average. 

The runner-up in the trophy 
competition was Kappa Sigma, 
with Tau Epsilon Phi in third 

Gamma Rho won 
the trophy in the 1958-59 school 

Theta Chi, the winning frater- 
nity, had placed first in the bowl- 
ing tournament, and in both the 
I.F.C. skits and the sing. 

Theta Chi won the skit com- 
petitions last spring with their 
original satire in verse entitled 
"The Trial of J. P. Mather." In 
this competition, second place 
went to Phi Sigma Kappa, and 
third to Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

Theta Chi also captured first 
place in the inter-fraternity sings 
with their presentation of "Gau- 
deamus Igutur". Tau Epsilon Phi 
and Tau Kappa Epsilon took sec- 
ond and third places, respective- 
ly, in this category of competi-

At The Stole House 

Furcolo To Appoint 100; 
Senate Inquiries Limited 

As the Legislature today re- 
sumed investigations into two 
state agencies, time became an 
increasingly important factor to 
legislative leaders planning the 
end of the 1960 Legislature. 

The investigations into the 
highway division of the state de- 
partment of public works and the 
Metropolitan District Commis- 
sion, now being conducted by 
special Senate committees, have 
a termination date of Oct. 11. To 
continue the investigations be- 
yond that date would require a 
joint special committee of Sena- 
tors and Representatives, or the 
creation of a special legislative 

Senate President John Powers 
(D-Boston), who heads the com- 
mittee probing the MDC, will sit 
down with legislative leaders to- 
day or tomorrow tft discuss the 
situation. A decision will be made 
when to adopt so-called proroga- 
tion rules which speed up the 
legislative process by permitting 
quicker action on bills going 
through the Legislature. 

Though still smarting from his 
defeat for the Democratic nom- 
ination for US. Senator, Cover- 
nor Furcolo today is in the happy 
position of having more than 100 

state jobs to hand out before he 
takes a lonely walk down State 
House steps on Jan. 5, 1961. 

The positions range from As- 
sociate Justices of the Supreme 
and Superior Courts to trustees 
of state institutions, for which 
the in-fighting is just as furious 
as for the well-paid jobs. Though 
he undoubtedly has complete 
files on all applicants, the Gover- 
nor will have to hustle to make 
the appointments before his 
term expires. 

In addition, the State Art Com- 
miss'on's members terms expired 
last Stpt. 2; a vacancy on the 
Boston Arena Authority; two 
vacancies on the advisory board 
of the public welfare depart- 
ment; 35 masters in chancery; 
nine public administrators; three 
medical examiners and two as- 
sociate medical examiners; and 
scores of trustees of state in- 

Finally, he will appoint, with- 
out need for Executive Council 
approval, the three members of 
the commission which will con- 
struct the $50 million state gov- 
ernment center. The top job is 
expected to go to William F. Cal- 
lahan, chairman of the Turnpike 

Rocket Club 
Planned For 
UM Campus 


All students interested in es- 
tablishing a chapter of the Amer- 
ican Rocket Society at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts are 
asked to contact Robert L. Smith 
at 207 Mills. 

The American Rocket Society 
is one of the largest rocket so- 
cieties in the world and includes 
such noteworthy men as John P. 
Strapp, Krafft Ehricke, Wernher 
von Braun, and George P. Sut- 
ton. Its Corporation Members in- 
clude Convair, General Electric, 
Rocketdyne, Reaction Motors, 
and Raytheon. 

The American Rocket Society 
was founded in 1930 to promote 
the study of astronautics and its 
allied fields. In its early years 
the society actively engaged in 
research; however, today the re- 
search is limited to individual 
members and chapters. 

The society subsidizes its chap- 
ters and offers immeasurable op- 
portunities to its members. 
Through its publications, confer- 
ences, and meetings, its mem- 
bers are kept abreast of the de- 
velopments in the field, which in- 
cludes all phases of engineering, 
physics, math, chemistry, and to 
a lesser degree, sociology, geo- 
lofiry» psychology and law. 

Student members have the op- 
portunity to win the $1000 ARS 
Chrysler Corporation Award for 
the best paper on any subject 
related to astronautics. 

Among the college chapters 
are MIT, Cal. Tech, Princeton, 
Oberlin, Michigan State, and 
Penn. At MIT some of the stu- 
dents did research on the pro- 
pagation of the flame front by 
using a motor made from lucite.

The University of Massachu- 
setts made Maine's B{ack Bears 
look like the kind that can be 
bought in a toy store Saturday 
when the Redmen skinned them 
in the Bear's own den, 21 -IS. 

The solid forward wall of the 
"new look" Redmen did a great 
job of containing the opponents 
during most of the afternoon. 
The UMass griddcrs also put to- 
gether a surprisingly strong 
running attack. This combined 
with John McCormick's aerial 
"bombs", resulted in a total of 
351 yards. 

Following a scoreless first 
quarter, the Amherst boys began 
to move. After directing his boys 
into Maine's stamping grounds, 
McCormick hit Roger Benvenuti 
on the 16. The junior halfback 
from Adams then galloped to pay 
dirt. John Bamberry bisected the 
uprights to project Massachusetts 
into a 7-0 lead. 

The Bears clawed their way 
back on the next play from 
scrimmage. Dave Cloutier took 


a handoff and scampered 90 yards 
for the score. Manch Wheeler 
split the uprights to knot the 
game at 7-7. 

Coach Studley's crew threat- 
ened again with less than a min- 
ute remaining in the first half. 
McCormick's long pass found 
Harry Williford, who was downed 
on the 15. Two successive losses, 
however, set the Redmen back 
to midfield as the half ended. 

Late in the third period the 
Massmen put together an 83 yard 
drive to break the deadlock. Mc- 
Cormick, who completed five out 
of six passes during the march 
climaxed the drive with a plunge 
into the end zone from one yard 

Still the boys from the north- 
land were not to be denied. 
Wayne Champeon fumbled Jack 
Conway's booming punt on the 
20 yard strit)e. The speedy little 
halfback picked up the pigskin 
on the 28 and thrilled the 7500 
fans as he raced all the way

Leeds Hospital Announces 
Volunteer Training Program 

The Leeds Veterans Adminis- 
tration Hospital in Northampton 
has announced that the Fall Ori- 
entation and Indoctrination 
course for volunteer workers will 
be held Sept. 28 and Oct. 5 at 
7:15 p.m. 

This two session course is re- 
quired by the government for all 
volunteers serving in the hospi- 
tal wards. Transportation will be 
provided for everyone interested, 
and will leave Skinner Hall at 
6:30 P.M. 

The purpose of the course is to 
provide the volunteer with an un- 
derstanding of the Veterans Ad- 
ministration Volunteer Service 
(VAV.S) program, which includes 
the fundamental principles and 
methods of volunteer assistance 
in the hospital program, policy, 
functions, and objectives of the 

V.A. hospital program. 

The UMass VAVS program is 
sponsored by the Campus Reli- 
gious Council and the Red Cross. 
This program involves two nights 
a month on an assigned ward at 
the hospital. Qualified volunteers 
go to the ward as a group and 
entertain the patients by playing 
cards, dancing, or simply talk- 
ing to them. Volunteers with un- 
usual or special talents are al- 
ways needed, and constitute an 
important part of the program. 

If interested, please sign your 
name and address at a sign up 
sheet which will be at the Stu- 
dent Union Lobby Counter start- 
ing Wednesday Sept. 21. If you 
have any questions or desire 
further information, please con- 
tact Norm Sharp at 218 Hilla 
North or at AL 3-9289. 


Fraternities — 
On The Defense? 

Dean of Men Robert S. Hopkins Jr. 
urged the UMass fraternities to *'get off the 
defensive" at the Wednesday night meeting 
of the Fraternity Presidents Assembly. 

Getting off the defensive is really only a 
half-way step to the ideal program — an ag- 
gressive, imaginative schedule of activities 
for the school year, is what is needed to 
revitalize the fraternity system. 

Last year's liquor ban forced the frater- 
"nities to re-evaluate and change their pro- 
gram from one which was centered around 
drinking parties of one form or another. Un- 
fortunately, last year's program was unsuc- 
cessful in that it failed to keep the brothers 
at home on weekends, and the fraternities 
found no matter how hard they tried, only 
a handful would come to these parties. 

It will be quite difficult to overcome these 
circumstances, but it is desirable and pos- 
sible if the IFC collectively and the frater- 
nity presidents separately use imagination 
in planning the events this year. 

One of the reasons for brothers losing in- 
terest in house parties and get-togethers was 
that people just naturally get tired of the 
same faces and conversations. 

Perhaps this problem would be solved if 
weekend festivities were arranged in a man- 
ner similar to the highly successful exchange 
suppers. If two or three fraternities were to 
ask some of the brothers to attend another 
frat's party while inviting some of the mem- 
bers of that fraternity to their own party, 
there would be the new faces, different con- 
versations, and an interesting exchange of 

Perhaps the brothers should invite some 
of their non-fraternity friends to bring in 
some new faces. 

Ceilainly the fraternity presidents must 
use the courage and imagination that 
brought the chariot races and Louis Arm- 
strong to the UMass campus if they ever 
hope to regain the top social spotlight, in- 
deed, if a good social program is to exist on 
the campus at all.

IT'S UP TO US . . . 

By clearly outclassing Maine Saturday, 
the UMass football team passed an impor- 
tant test. If the team were to have a chance 
of winning the Yankee Conference crown, a 
victory over Maine was vital. 

The Redmen passed their test. Now it's 
up to the fans to pass theirs and support the 
team by attending the rallies and by turning 
out en masse to greet the team for its first 
home game Saturday.

Vox Populi 

In representing the University campus and re- 
flecting the opinions of the student body, as well as 
the faculty and administrators, the Collegian would 
like to encourage contributions to this "Letters" 
column. It is hoped that as the academic year pro- 
gresses and as controversies begin to stir, members 
of the UMass community will be inspired to add 
their views — praises or ci'ticisms — for considera-

A new experimental course in History 25 has ap- 
peared on the University scene. This lecture session 
consists of 225 students. We have one consolation 
though. For students who do not benefit from large 
lecture sections, there will also be ten discussion 
sessions throughout the course. 

Harold W. Gary, professor and head of the his- 
tory department, has stated that this is an experi- 
mental course and seems, so far, to be successful. 
He added, "This idea of a large lecture session 
worked well with many History 5 and 6 courses. It 
should also be given a chance to work well in the 
American History, History 25, course." 

What we the students, want to know is, will we 
obtain as much benefit from these large lectures as 
the department does by giving them ? We think that 
a course such as history needs to be discussed more 
than just having facts thrown out to us. 

Still, there are two other sections of History 25 
with 30 students each and two honors sections with 
20 students each. These sections include discussions. 
Now, who is to say whether the students in the 30 
student sections are more deserving to be in the 
small discussion groups than the students in the 
larger section? If special consideration can be given 
to the honors students why can it not also be given 
to the less gifted (Mark-Wise) students? 

We students feel that special consideration 
should be given to this problem and if the large 
lecture session cannot be eliminated, then more 
discussion sections should be added.

Americans In Russia 

More than forty years of ruthless Soviet rule 
have not squelched the Russian people's capacity for 
independent thought. 

This is the conclusion of Yale University student 
Charles Neff, who toured the Soviet Union recently 
with seventeen fellow members of the Yale Russian 
Chorus. In an article in the May Reader's Digest, 
Neff tells author Enno Hobbing that throughout 
Russia, the young singers encountered people eager 
to learn about the outside world. 

Neff and his friends visited Russia as students 
rather than singers; thus they had no "official" 
concerts scheduled. But when ther first impromptu 
song — delivered in a Leningrad hotel — met with 
enthusiasm from the Russian listeners, they knew 
they could safely sing their way through the coun- 

Lively discussions usually followed their con- 
certs, Neff reports. Peace was the central theme. 
With surprising freqency the opinions expressed by 
Russian citizens varied from the "party line." 
When, for example, some young Communist of- 
ficials began reciting Party-line slogans, a group 
of citizens shouted, "Oh, come on, we've heard that 
before." Russian students attacked Marxism on the 
same grounds on which it is criticized in the West. 

So deep is the Russians' desire for peace, says 
Neff, that some indicated they would stand up to 
the Kremlin if it tried to send them into battle. One 
middle-aged worker declared: "I Will never kill a 
man again— except to shoot the officer who telfs me 
to shoot." 

Religion is surprisingly vigorous, Neff says. At 
least 200 babies were baptized in one day in a Greek 
Orthodox Church in Leningrad. The youth of the 
worshippers, mostly young parents who travelled 
from nearby towns, belied the Soviet claim that 
only the old cling to religion. 

Neff's conclusion: The Soviet people are not 
about to revolt. They are, however, critical of their 
rulers— often in a highly vocal way. And signi- 
ficantly, the criticism seems to be increasing. 

The article, "To Russia With Music," is con- 
densed from The Lion.

Part I 

I still remember that Sunday when I watched "Omnibus", a tele- 
vision series which has subsequently left the airwaves. On this par- 
ticular program, a short and very interesting film was being shown. 
At first glance, all that one could see was a motley assemblage of 
young men, most of whom were bearded. Over their shoulders were 
slung powerful Belgian rifles and some wore military dress. 

After about a half-minute of curious inspection by the camera, 
the sound-track cut in and one could hear the somewhat distorte<l 
voice of the Omnibus reporter. He said something about how hard it 
was to secure this interview and proceeded to explain his exact where- 
abouts. He went on to tell about a group of mountains in Cuba and 
more specifically about a few men who were apparently dissatisfied 
with the existing government of the island nation. He said that these 
men now constituted a guerilla force which based itself in these moun- 

The reporter thert quizzed one of the group (in Spanish) as to 
who amongst them spoke English. The guerilla pointed to his side 
and the camera panned around to a rather short, somewhat stout 
man who had developed a fairly dense beard which, I suspect, made 
him look older than he actually was. 

The reporter then questioned this man, who replied in broken 
English with long sentences. At regular intervals, he looked ques- 
tioningiy at the reporter to see if the poor English was getting across. 
I can not say that I remember exactly what he said, but I recall that 
it consisted of a mass of generalities such as the evils of the existing 
regime and the need for freedom. 

Unaccustomed as my generation is to listening to bearded revolu- 
tionaries propounding the virtues of freedom, I viewed this interview 
as a sort of human circus. And this is exactly how Alistaire Cooke, 
the host of "Omnibus", viewed it — with tongue in cheek! 

As you probably have guessed by now, that bearded revolutionary 
was Fidel Castro. This man, at the time of that interview, was fight- 
ing at the head of a small group of men against a regime that was 
corrupt, ruthless, and despotic. There existed no doubt in the minds 
of Castro's men that the Battista regime Was a bloodbath, nor does 
there remain any doubt (even in the United States) that this was so. 


The supreme effort on the part of the Commons to 
muster up a dinner edible to even the connoiseur last Mon- 
day petered out by Friday. Perhaps this was also so in the 
other dining halls. At any rate, Friday evening our limited 
choice included an inviting creamed asparagus ... or was 
it broccoli? We had little to go on besides the bottom of the 
bottoms in this culinary artifice. Who had the tops?

This saving for the students, 
an avowed objective of the Store, 
is done by selling the book at 5% 
less than what the Store paid for 

Baucom's Book Store, said Mr. 
Baucom, does the same thing. 
"Except for scattered cases," .said 
Mr. Baucom, "our prices are the 
same as the University Store." 

This similarity in prices holds 
true for used books also. Both the 
University Store and Baucom's 
buy back books at half the price 
they originally paid for them. 
They resell at 757c of the original 

"The profits," said Mr. Ryan, 
"are made on supplies." The 
Store loses, he added, on the 
average 3% for each book. 

The Store does make an aver- 
age net profit of 6% each year, 
of which 3% goes to the Student 
Union to help defray the cost of 
the overhead. 

The remaining 3% of the net 
goes back into the Store. Some 
profit has to be made, said Mr. 
Ryan, for the Store has "got to 
grow like the rest of the Univer-

Your Congressman 

What Do You Know About Him? 
What Does He Know About You? 

YOUR spokesmen in Congress — YOUR representa- 
tives — arc the two Senators from your state and the Rep- 
resentative from your Congressional district. This is true 
regardless of whether the incumbent office holders repre- 
sent the political party to which you belong or an opposing 
political party. Once Senators or Representatives have been 
elected they represent all the people of their state or their 
district no matter which party they are affiliated with. 

Your spokesmen in the national government cannot do 
a good job of representing you unless they know and under- 
stand your views and you, in turn understand their prob- 
lems. They need and want the opinions of all their con- 
stituents — if they can get them — regardless of party affilia- 


It must be remembered that a Congressman's first 
Dbligation is to his constituents. His big problem is to get 
reelected, and mu^-h of his time is taken up with satisfying 
the demands of those who have sent him to Washington. 
Their views are always given first place in his thoughts. 
Accurate and useful information sent to him by a voter in 
his district is always appreciated. He welcomes hearing 
from "back home" because it shows him the people know he 
is alive and are interested in what he is doing. Until we re- 
alize our representatives in Congress want and welcome our 
views and we take the trouble to communicate frequently, 
3ur relations in Washington will not be wliat they should 
—or ought to be. Remember, you don't have to wait until 
V'ou have a complaint to write to your Senators and Rep- ' 
resentatives. They're human too, and a pat on the back is 
appreciated by them as it is by you, and a slap in the face 
arouses their anger as readily as yours. Don't gripe — 


1. Keep your letters as brief 
as possible. 

2. Tell the essentials about 
yourself or your business. 

3. Be forthright: If you're for 
something, say so. Don't beat 
around the bush. 

4. Avoid emotion: Prove your 
case with facts and figures. 

5. Be reasonable: Seek only 
possible things. 

6. Speak for yourself: Use 
your own stationery and letter 


7. Be courteous: Compliment 
him on a good speech, thank 
him for a good vote, and rec- 
ognize his staff, too. 

8. Request action: Your man 
is elected to do something. 

9. Ask for an answer: You've 
told him where you stand. Ask 
him where he stands. 

10. Don't stop with one letter. 
Keep your Congressman in- 
formed of your views on all im- 
portant legislation.

University Chorale 
Starts New Year 
Auditions Tuesday 

Do you like to sing? New faces 
and voices are being sought this 
year as the University Chorale 
once again .starts its concert 
preparations. The Chorale, under 
the direction of I'rof. John King, 
is an organiation of students and 
others who are interested in 
singing all types of classical and 
some sacred compositions. 

Last year this traditional 

UMass organization presented 
several concerts, including the 
fall concert at Bowker Audi- 
torium, a special Christmas pro- 
gram, and a joint concert with 
Clark University. 

The group is looking forward 
to presenting its first program 
of the year on October 2fi. If you 
are interested, in this and other 
concerts, please see Prof. King 
in his office, which is in the 
basement -of Old Chapel. You are

down the sidelines. 

Coach Waterman's boys 
played to win, but Cloutier's two 
point conversion attempt failed. 

The UMass crew now had clear 
sailing. As the clock ticked off 
the final minutes sub fullback 
Dick Hoss romped for 41 yards 
to score. Bamberry's "macrir toe" 
ran the final count to 21-13. 

Clouding the picture of the 
Redmcn's initial win was the fact 
that two starters have been lost. 
Center Vin Caputo and fullback 
John Gazourian both sustained 
knee injuries in the first half. 
Preliminary reports indicated 
that Caputo will be los^ for an 
indefinite period. Gazourian suf- 
fered a twisted knee and probably 

will miss Saturday's tussle with 
AIC . . . Studley still has two 
sophomore centers to replace Ca-

the UMass mentor was particu- 
larly pleased with the defense 
and the pass receiving by Willi- 
ford, Majeski and Forbush . . . 
Though Maine ran up 143 yards, 
90 of these were the result of 
Cloutier's sprint in the first half 
... As was the case in the Cor- 
nell scrimmage, Maine wasn't 
able to put together a sustained 
scoring drive. Studley feels that 
this speaks very well of the de- 
fense but he is searching for 
a reason for the opponent's sud- 
den long breakaways . . . Satur-

The Boston Patriots won the gins this year.

The game was won on a fluke 
play. New York had the ball on 
its own 10 with only seconds left 
to play when a pass from center 
was fumbled. An alert Patriot 
lineman picked up the ball 
and ambled over the line as the 
final buzzer sounded t(» give Bos-

The Patriots now have a record

Registration Dance Opens 
Year's Social Calendar 

Students Plan Sky-Diving Show 


Enjoying Registration Dance are Mr. and Mrs. Bert Stanley, 
both class of '61. Al White '64. and Judy Knox '63. 

On Wednesday, September 
21st, there will be an exhibition 
sky-diving parachute jump made 
by three members of the UMass. 
Parachute Club. Dana Smith 
(282 jumps), Ellsworth Getchell 
(242 jumps), and Richard Fill- 
more (100 jumps) will attempt a 
double baton pass during a thirty 
to sixty seconds freefall with 
orange smoke. The jump is sched- 
uled for 6 P.M., weather per- 
mitting. Th*» veteran parachutists 
will open their multi-colored 
canopies at 2,000 feet and at- 
tempt to land on a predesignated 
target which will be located near 
the Student Union pond. In the 
event of unfavorable weather, the 
exhibition will be postponed until 
Thursday evening, September 
22nd at 6 p.m. 

The purpose of the jump is to 
advertise the Parachute Club's 
first meeting of the new semes- 
ter which will be held at 7 P.M. 
on Wednesday, September 21st in 
the Barnstable and Franklin

Advocated By 

Elmira, N.Y.— (I.P.) — Col- 
lege students need to learn that 
acquiring an education is a do-it- 
yourself project, according to 
President J. Ralph Murray of 
Elmira College. He advocates 
that every freshman be given 
the opportunity of having one 
independent study course. 

Professors may object that 
freshmen are not ready for this 
undertaking, Dr. Murray said. 
•They would be" he added "ex- 
cept that professors in America 
think their students cannot and 
will not learn without professors 
as the source of most wisdom. 

"I submit that many students 
at all levels in higher education 
would receive more meaningful 
educational experience, with bet- 
ter net results, if they were 
given good course outlines, mi- 
meographed copies of many lec- 
tures and suggestions for broad 
reading; attended a few lectures, 
had infrequent conferences with 
the professor, and were asked to 
make a full accounting of their 
experience both in a paper and 
through an oral examination. 
Thus, they would be encouraged 


— and even forced — to share the 
responsibility for the acquisition 
of their education." 

He pointed out that many edu- 
cators want students to have in- 
dividual and group responsibility 
in student government and the 
social areas, and in choice of 
courses; but that these same edu- 
cators demand "prescribed reac- 
tions, stereotyped methods and 
limited content in what they call 
the last stronghold of freedom, 
the classroom." 

Dr. Murray suggested decreas- 
ing the number of courses taken 
by the student, eliminating much 
of thv^ time spent in class and re- 
quiring that all courses on a stu- 
dent's program be interrelated. 
This, he £iaid, would make pos- 
sible greater depth in breadth in 
the educational experience. 

"The best qualified students 
and faculty could pursue excel- 
lence to the extent of their capa- 
bilities," he added, "and all other 
students and faculty would have 
the freedom and opportunity to 
pursue their interests in pro-

Ford Sponsors Humanities 
Study At Princeton 

Princeton, N.J.— (I.P.)— A sys- 
tematic attempt to analyze the 
contributions of humanistic schol- 
arship toward American intel- 
lectual life is being undertaken at 
Princeton University as the Ford 
Humanities Project, according to 
a preliminary report of Professor 
Richard Schlatter, chairman of 
the history department at Rut- 
gers University, and newly-ap- 
pointed director. 

In the next two years profes- 
sors from Princeton and other 
institutions will try to determine 
how humanistic scholarship and 
teaching can be enhanced, and to 
chart their position and direction. 
Sponsored and coordinated by 
Princeton's Council of the Hu- 
manities, the venture will be ear- 
ned forward with a grant of 
$336,000 from the Pord Founda- 

tion. Professor Schlatter holds 
the rank of Visiting Senior Fel- 
low of the Council. 

The Ford Project's planners in- 
clude ten members of a Prince- 
ton Humanities Council sub-com- 
mittee, and scholars from other 
universities who will work in 
various areas, most of them in 
Princeton. These planners define 
"the humanities" as meaning the 
traditional broad spectrum of 
philosophy, language, literature, 
religion, the fine arts and his- 

In addition, the planners are 
investigating certain social sci- 
ences, such as cultural anthro- 
pology and political science, and 
on a more important level, the 
interplay of concepts between the 
humanities and the natural sci- 
ences themselves.

UMass Senior Works 
As Town Policeman 

(Reprinted from the Springfield Daily News) 

Although he is a frequent 
prosecution witness in District 
Court, not many attaches or visi- 
tors there seem to realize that 
Amherst Patrolman James M. 
Shea is a senior at the University 
of Massachusetts who hopes to 
rise above the role of a town gen- 
darme by becoming a criminolo- 

Shea early in his student days 
was employed during the summer 
vacation by the Yarmouth Police 
Department as a traffic officer. 

Amherst Town Manager, Allen 
L. Torrey, driving through Yar- 
mouth, noticed an alert young 
officer putting town traffic 
through its paces in a brisk ef- 
ficent manner. An inquiry identi- 
fied the officer as a UMass stu- 
dent. Shea, soon appointed a spe- 
cial officer, is now assigned to a 
8 to 11 p.m. shift which enables 
him to attend his morning 

Patrolman Shea figured prom- 
inently ^in the probe which re- 
cently uncloaked a gang as being 
responsible for robberies at the 
UMass and Amherst College 

dormitories over a long period of 

Patrolman Shea also was the 
first officer at the scene of the 
murder of Joan Julian, 17, at 
Amherst in June, 1969. He as- 
sembled evidence that was incor- 
porated into the case. 

Quiet and unassuming. Patrol- 
man Shea concentrates on doing 
a thorough, workmanlike police 
job. He makes an excellent wit- 
ness in court as he makes it his 
business to know the facts in a 
police case down to the last de- 

The fact that Patrolman Shea 
is a UMass man has not pre- 
vented him from getting along 
well with hundreds of college 
boys and girls who flock about 

As a matter of fact, Chief Hart 
realizes that Patrolman Shea is 
on somewhat of a spot so he has 
Sgt. Weymouth Heath or Patrol- 
man Donald Maia deal with stu- 
dent high jinks most of the time. 
In any case, the chief realizes 
that he can rely on Patrolman 
Shea any time the student going 
might get rough. 

Eight University Students 
Attend Industrial Conference 

On Monday, September 19, 
eight Recreation Leadership ma- 
jors from the University with 
Dr. Dana Harlow of the Depart- 
ment as their advisor, attended 
the New England Section of the 
National Industrial Recreation 
As9ociation Conference in Water- 
bury, Connecticut. 

Representing the department 
were Doug DeVries, Jim Earley, 
Ken Swain, Ted Kelly, Bob 
Hatch, Ron Packard, Joel Lerner, 
and Bob Freedman. 

This New England Conference, 
sponsored by 150 major indus- 
tries in conjunction >w:ith the Na- 

tional Indusrtrial Recreation As- 
sociation, was the second to be 
held in New England. With the 
rapid rise of industry in New 
England, recreation is playing an 
important role in the plant future. 
According to industrial planners, 
recreation and leisure-time op- 
portunities for employees is one 
of the major issues in plant-site 
selection today. 

Industrial leaders from New 
England's major industries dis- 
cussed problems related to in- 
dustrial recreation in the area of 
facilities, promotion, program, 
and finance.

opening victory over Maine were 
then shown. Richard Anderson, 
backfield coach of the Redmen, 
narrated the fllm. 

The films clearly indicated that 
Maine's final score was illegal. 
After taking Jack Conway's long 
punt on his own 20 yard line, 
Wayne Champeon fumbled the 
ball. While attempting to retrieve 
the pigskin the speedy halfback 
kicked it toward the sidelines 
where he picked it up and raced 


all the way to paydirt. 

Since the ball was clearly 
kicked, the run should have been 
nullified. This play, although im- 
portant at the time, never affect- 
ed the final outcome. 

Line coach Chet Gladchuck 
ended the program with an ad- 
vance scouting report on AIC, 
the next opponent for the Red- 
men. This report was very limit- 
ed, however, since the Springfield 
club hasn't played a regular 
game this season. 

It is known, though, that AIC 
has a heavy, fast line. Quarter- 
back Dick Glogowski holds the 
key to the Aces football future. 
The big sophomore seems to be 
making the switch gracefully 
from halfbaclc to the signal-call- 
ing job. 

When asked if he was planning 
to save any plays for Harvard 
and Connecticut, Studley respond- 
ed that he is planning to beat

Governing Board Of Union 
Inaugurates Coffee Room 

At The State House: 

State House 
Delay Senate 

Boston — Prorogation rules, the 
parliamentary device to speed 
up the legislative process, will be 
adopted by both the Senate and 
House shortly as evidence of 
legislators' intent to bring the 
1960 session of the Legislature 
to a close. 

Leaders in both branches in- 
dicated an informal drive is 
widerway to prorogue the Gen- 
eral Court so members can cam- 
paign before the Nov. 8 election. 
Because of the larger than usual 
number of legislative contests, 
both parties want time to woo 
voters in the 'next few weeks. 

House Speaker John F. Thomp- 
son (D- Ludlow) called a confer- 
ence of committee chairman, and 
members of both the House rules 
and ways and means committees 
to hasten reports on legislation 
before committees. 

Investigations Slow Senate 
Senate President John E. Pow- 
ers (D-Boston) said that if neces- 
sary the Senate will meet Friday, 
and perhaps hold night sessions. 
He pointed out, however, that 
prorogation cannot become a real- 
ity within the next 10 days as 
two special Senate committees 
are conducting investigations in- 
to state agencies and have until 
Oct, 11 to report. 

President Powers heads a spe- 
cial committee which is probing 
the Metropolitan District Com- 
mission, while Senator Maurice 
A. Donahue (D-Holyoke), major- 
ity leader, heads another inquir- 
ing into the highway division of 
the State Department of Public 
Works. The latter committee has 
interviewed Democratic State 
Auditor Thomas J. Buckley, 
whose charges of irregularities 
triggered the two probes. 

First Meeting 
Of Newman 
Club Tonight 

Tonight the Newman Club will 
hold its first meeting of this aca- 
demic year. The guest speaker at 
this meeting will be Rev. John 
O'Donoghue, a prominent theo- 

Father O'Donoghue has chosen 
for his topic the Oecumenical 
Movement. This Movement deals 
with a meeting, called by the 
Pope, of all the bishops of the 
Church to discuss matters of 
Faith and Liturgy. One of these 
Councils will be held in the near 
future. An explanation of this 
Oecumenical Movement will be 
well dealt with, by Father O'- 

The meeting will begin at 7:30 
P.M. in the Dining Commons. 
After the meeting a social hour 
will be held with refreshments 


The Student Union Governing 
Board announced Monday in its 
monthly meeting the establish- 
COFFEE ROOM. The Bristol, 
Essex and Hampshire rooms of 
the S.U. have been set aside 
from 9-10:30 a.m. Monday thru 
Friday on an experimental basis 
for the use of all students and 
faculty who wish to chat over 
coffee without the excessive con- 
fusion of the Hatch. 

It was emphasized by the gov- 
erning board that this was not 
an extension of the Hatch, but a 
room to facilitate student-faculty 

Senate president, Dennis Two- 
hig '61, expressed the feeling 
that the room should not be a 
room for the faculty to get away 
from -the students. "If it works 
this way the room should be 
closed," Twohig stated. 

New Constitution Is Ratified 
The Student Union Governing 
Board, under the new constitu- 
tion ratified at the last meeting, 
is composed of one representative 
from Adelphia, Mortar Board, 
and the Student Senate; three 
students elected from each of the 
upper three classes; two faculty 
members, and one alumni rep- 
Ex-officio members include the 


Director of the Student Union, 
William Scott; Assistant Direc- 
tor of the Student Union, Harold 
W. Watts; and the Assistant Di- 
rector, Student Activities, Ed- 
ward A. Buck. 

The board is the recommend- 
ing agency for all operational 
policy in the S.U. In actuality the 
recommendations of this board 
are instituted in the S.U. 

Election of Three Students 
At-Large to the Governing Board 

The election of the three stu- 
dents at-large will be held in con- 
junction with the student senate 
election on October 4. 

The nomination papers for the 
positions can be obtained from 
the Dean of Men's Office. 

William Scott, director of the 
S.U., emphasized that people fil- 
ing nomination papers should 
have a cumulative average of at 
least that required for their grad- 
uating class. 

The necessity for this is to pro- 
vide some continuity for the 

Program Council Budget 
Is Accepted 

Herbert Bello, 61, president of 
the Proflrram Council, presented 
the council budget for 1960-61. 
The estimated expenditure uf 
$10,670.00 was accepted by the 

Senatorial Candidates 
To Receive Orientation 

Nominees to this year's Stu- 
dent Senate will find a new con- 
cept of Senate orientation facing 
them as Senate President Dennis 
Twohig initiates the first in a 
.series of pre-election briefings to 
be given to prospective Student 

In an effort to improve the 
quality of leadership in the 
Senate by providing a limited 
education in Senate affairs and 
responsibilities, Tw<^ig and Elec- 
tions Chairman Bill Knowlton 
will give a brief orientation Sept. 
30, to all nominees for the Octo- 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

ber 4 election in the Student 
Union. This Ulk will be designed 
to give a possible future Senator 
an idea of what his duities will 
be as well as an idea of the 
amount of time and effort each 
will be required to expend. In do- 
ing this it is hoped that better- 
prepared Student Senators will 
result in less resignations 
through the year. 

Any student taking out nomin- 
ation papers from the Dean of 
Men's Office within the Septem- 
ber 22 to 29 limiting dates will 
be required to attend this meet- 

Redmen Rally And Dance 
To Launch Home Season 

UMass football rally and dance 
will begin Friday evening, Sept. 
23, with a parade through cam- 
pus. Led by the cheerleaders, 
Redmen marching band, and pre- 
cisionettes, the parade will start 
at the top of Baker Hill at 6:46 
p.m.; continue down in Iwck of 
Wheeler, past the Infirmary to 
the W.P.E. Building down to Rt. 
116, and arrive finally at. the 
S.U. bonfire pit. 

The Rally will be held on i\\k 
back lawn of the S.U. beginning 

at 7:30 p.m. with- the school 

cheers, short talks by ?rovost 

Shannon McCune and Coach 

"Chuck" Studley, and climaxed 
by a bonfire. 

Following the Rally, a dance 
will be held in the S.U. ballreom 
sponsored by the Scrolls, Maroon 
Key, Mortar Board, and Adelphia. 
The music will be provided by 
"Tex and his Corvetts", a Pitts- 
field rock 'n roll band. During in- 
termission, students will have the 
opportunity of meeting the play- 
ers and coaches of this year's 
victorious Redmen squad. Coach 
Studley and his scouts will give 
a "chalk talk" at this time. 

The Redmen will be looking for 
their second victory of the sea- 
son against AIC on Saturday. 


Volunteers Needed 

Registration has begun today for the an- 
nual training and indoctrination program 
of students volunteering their time and 
services to cheer the patients at Leeds Vet- 
erans Administration Hospital in Northamp- 

The UMass Volunteer Service program, 
sponsored by the Campus Religious Council 
and the Red Cross, calls for willing and in- 
terested students to donate their spare 
hours working in groups in the wards of the 
hospital. All who are interested in lending 
a hand are encouraged to leave their name 
and address on the SU lobby desk. 

We feel sure the people at Leeds would 
appreciate whatever services and talents you 
may offer. 

To The Faculty 

This year the Collegian is particularly 
interested in achieving a high readership 
among the faculty, because it is important 
to have a medium for the exchange of ideas 
between students and teachers. 

In line with, this goal, the newspaper is 
offering subscriptions to the faculty and 
administration for $2.00 per year delivered 
on campus. Also, we will deliver the paper 
on the day of publication to any building in 
which there are fifteen or more subscribers. 
This is intended to eliminate the problem 
of offering the faculty stale news. 

We sincerely hope that every teacher and 
administrator will recognize the value of 
the Collegian as a principal means of work- 
ing out some of the problems in the campus 
community and will take advantage of this 
dO'/i discount.

For Fewer Flies 

September 19, 1960 
To the Editor: 

You may be interested in knowing that a "Flit 
Gun" for killing flies has been used nightly since 
last Friday in the Hatch. 

The initial results are most encouraging and we 
hope that the flies will not build a resistance against 
our insecticide. 

The "unavoidable swinging door situation" pre- 
vents one hundred percent eradication but we shall 
intensify our efforts. 

Russell W. Colvin 
Food's Manager 

Editor's Note: 

Ivet's now hope we'll be able to build up a re- 
sistance against the insecticide. 




Part II 

It is now significant to recall that the original object of Castro 
and his men was to oust the Battista regime . . . and this only! There 
was not the merest hint of "anti-Yankeeism". So now we see that it 
is even more important to find out just why the latter situation de- 

To ascertain this, it is necessary to confront certain basic ques- 

What should be the action of a successful revolution against those 
institutions which either actively or passively supported a previously 
corrupt government? More specifically, should the American, British, 
and other corporations be called to answer for the injustices of a 
regime perpetuated either actively or passively by these very cor- 
porations? I do not mean to imply here that Texaco gave financial 
backing to the Battista reg^ime nor do I mean to imply that any col- 
lusion took place between the corporations and the Battista govern- 
ment. (Certainly an American oil or sugar refinery would not bar- 
gain with a despot even if this were to result in various financial 
concessions. Certainly Texaco puts the freedom of the people before 
the mere dollars and cents in dividends!) 

Communist Leanings 
Well, as we all know now the revolution materialized. Battista 
hauled off as much money as he could and Castro set up a govern- 
ment containing several questionable (by Western standards) people. 
Then it seemed that the roof fell in, Castro began expropriating, and 
expropriating, and expropriating. 

The Cuban People who had been without land for years were the 
recipients of the dole. The factories which had once belonged to out- 
side interests were taken over by the new government. Whether 
those who had formerly owned these factories received sufficient 
reimbursement was, and still is, a matter of conjecture. It was a sort 
of Communistic fairy-tale in miniature! Che Che Guevera, the new 
economic minister of the young government, had Marxist leanings, it 
was learned. 

From these facts it was obvious that Castro was a communist 
and no doubt, in his youth, had planned a fourth Nationale. He was 
rather suspicious-looking anyway, with those sparkling eyes in con- 
trast with that wooly-black beard. To make things worse, when he 
spoke he always moved his hands around like Hitler and people no- 
ticed this. I guess they didn't see much of Roosevelt! 

And to this was added the commentary of those modem-day, de- , 
liciously handsome newsmen. They said that at the start Castro was 
alright but now he had gone too far. It sounded like a scenario of the 
French Revolution! (I've often wondere<l what Louis Lyons thinks of 
these suave, modem-day news analysts!) And even such liberal pa- 
pers as the Washington Post and the N.Y. Tunes echoed these senti- 

At any rate, the initial revolution passed and although we found 
ourselves with much less property, we at least knew that there existed 
perhaps a shade more freedom on the island. I'm sure that this 
thought was a consolation to many stockholders. But we must remem- 
ber this: at that stage there were still no placards saying "Yankee, 
go home!" There still remained a chance to influence Castro and Cuba 
to our way of thinking. Or perhaps it was too late. No one knows. 
"Economic Aggression" 

At this time, .some of our southern Senators, well 
known for their democratic ideals, along with other 
conscientious overseers of our nation began talking 
about cutting the sugar quota, Cuba said that this 
constituted "economic aggression," but the 0,A.S, 
disagreed. (This term "economic aggression" is 
somewhat general and consequently difficult to dis- 
cuss in political circles where one side thinks on one 
plane and the other, on another.) 

It is now clear however that the whole situation 
was initiated by the wholesale expropriation of 
foreign investment in Cuba. And thus, we come 
back to my original question: 

Is an institution which supports, either actively 
or passively, a corrupt government liable to seizure 
in the event of revolution ? 

One need not be unnecessarily idealistic 
answer this.

NO. 11 




The bi-monthly Evergreen Review, No. 11, is a 
testimony to beatdom. A package-deal of the 
modern in literature, it contained the writings of 
Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsburg; a collection of 
letters written behind the walls of a French insane 
asylum by an inmate, Antonin Artaud; an inter- 
view with the French Existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre 
on modern theater; and Irene Gray's wonderfully 
strange, obscure story "Dangerous Passage." 

The article "Kerouac's Sound" by Warren Tall- 
man is for the squares, the uninitiated, a guide for 
digging this literature. The literature, despite its 
strangeness and obscurity, or perhaps because of it, 
is extremely exciting and fascinating, Tallman 
says: "To be Beat is to let your life come tumbling 
down into a humpty-dumpty heap, and with it into 
the same heap, the humpty-dumpty meanings which 
language attempts to sustain." Kerouac's words 
tumble out humpty-dumpty style in sentences two 
and three pages long. And phrases like "her little 
voice is littletinkled", "dust of that eworkrkraoub 
earth," and "gomezing along the road." This, like 
abstract art, creates impressions and moods first, 
concrete ideas secondly, if at all. 

Much -fun is made of beat writing. This is nor- 
mal; if it isn't understood, if it isn't familiar, people 
poke fun at it. I suggest that they, the beats, are 
impossible to entirely understand, because they are 
too close to their insides and are rejecting the re- 
finements, as well as the traditions and conventions 
of centuries of conformity. 

They speak as they think, neglecting to paste 
their humpty-dumpty thoughts and feelings into 
nice, smooth hard-boiled eggs. 

This Demi Paradise, by Margaret Halsey (Simon 
& Schuster): In previous books Miss Halsey's 
preoccupation with world issues ("With Malice 
Toward Some" for instance) tended to obscure 
the fact that she is a suburbanite. But her 
latest book is a just barely fictional "West- 
chester Diary" in which Helen Fitzgibbons, the 
diarist, discusses specificially a civil rights matter 
— whether or not her best friend's jrreat-aunt, a 
sort of female Albert Schweitzer who educates 
Asians, shall be allowed to speak in their com- 
munity. The American Legion said no. In exploring 
this special controversy. Miss Halsey manages to 
drop her own variety of blockbuster on some out- 
city institutions like the supermarket (Plethora, 
Inc.) and the liberal church (St. Euphoria-in-the- 
World). Miss Halsey has mellowed somewhat but 
her wit is still sharp. This is a very funny book and 
in a way a devastatingly true one.

C.A, Picnic 
Held Sunday 
For Frosh 


The Women's Physical Educa- 
tion Building and surrounding 
lawn was the scene Sunday for 
the annual C.A. Picnic put on to 
introduce the Christian Associa- 
tion and its functions to the in- 
coming freshmen. 

Rousing games of volleyball, 
badminton, ping-jwng, dodgeball, 
and frisby started the show on 
the road. Soon everyone moved 
inside where they were enter- 
tained by the very talented BufTy 
St. Marie, who sang and played 
her guitar, and Gail Osbaldeston, 
who played the accordion and led 
spirited group singing. Steve 
Allen served as the M.C. and 
Dave narrower, the C.A. Presi- 
dent, introduced this year's of- 
ficers: Steve Allen, Betty Bam- 
ford, Paul Hoden, Ruth MacLeod, 
Anne Kesigh, and John Slattery. 
Following this, freshmen were 
urged to sign up for the various 
C.A. committees and service 
groups and to view the displays 
of handicraft which the mentally 
ill children at Belchertown had 

Finally, the three hundred and 
fifty or so persons gathered in 
the game room to partake of the 

ing statements is the Slater Food 
Management Service, one of the 
largest such organizations in the 
country. It serves three meals a 
day to 150,000 college students in 
138 colleges in 27 states. 

Under direction of Mildred A. 
Baker, staff consultant for school 
food service, the Slater has just 
completed a pilot food preference 
survey at three colleges: Temple 
University, Philadelphia; Tran- 
sylvania College, Lexington, Ky., 
and Franklin & Marshall, Lan- 
caster, Pa. 

Slater felt its meals were 
healthful, nutritious, well cooked, 
attractively served. But the firm 
asked itself, was it really doing 
the job properly? 

The survey was the result. 

"The tensions and difficulties 
of college are such that it is our 
obligation to try to provide the 
students with a pleasant inter- 
lude during food service," Miss 
Baker said. "We can meet these 
requirements through food they 
like to eat." 

The lengthy, detailed question- 
naires were drawn up with the 
assistance of consulting psychol- 
ogists and were filled in by stu- 
dent volunteers, some of them. co- 
operating as part of a project 
in their psychology classes. Some 
220 questions were asked and 
space was left for individual com- 
ment.^ on items of local, regional 
or foreign interest. 

The survey developed that stu- 
dents like gelatin for dessert, but 
don't care for it in salads; they 
like potatoes in any form but 
prefer them French fried; they 
like varied and hearty break- 

fasts; and the exotic avocado is 
high on the don't-Iike list. 

College students, apparently, 
are anxious to try new dishes. 
They expressed a desire to try 
Nesselrode pie. Bavarian crean\ 
orange ambrosia, okra, grits, 
fresh vegetable aspic, snow pud- 
ding and Welsh rarebit. 

An odd fact is that although 
they indicated they would like to 
take a fling at fresh vegetable 
uspic, most students turned 
thumbs down on gelatin salads. 
Same thing. 

On the breakfast side, oatmeal 
topped the list along with corn 
flakes. Hot cakes shared honors 
with scrambled eggs. And all 
tyes of juices were popular. 

For lunch, most students in- 
dicated they liked tomato juice, 
a hamburger, French fries, tossed 
green salad, strawberry short- 
cake and milk. 

Their "ideal" dinner would in- 
clude fresh fruit cup, roast round 
of beef with brown gravy, 
whipped potatoes, buttered green 
beans, dinner rolls, ice cream, 
brownies, and a choice of coffee, 
tea or milk. 

At the other end of the menu, 
the so-called "riot" dinner they 
would pass up — forcibly if nec- 
essary—includes jellied consom- 
me, braised liver, okra, turnips, 
fresh vegetable aspic, bread pud- 
ding and buttermilk. 

Although okra is on the "riot" 
dinner, it also appears on the list 
of "want to "try" foods. 

Among some of the other don't- 
likes are pickled beets, cucumber 
and onion salad, steamed cab- 
bage, watercress, cheese fondue 
and carrot and raisin salad.

Kappa Sigma fraternity. 

SAM LUSSIER — halfback- 
sophomore — 5*11 — 184 — North- 
ridge. A hard runner who showed 
great promise in pre-season 
drills, Sam realized all expected 
of him in Maine. 

back — Junior — 5'10 — 178 — 
Adams. A tremendous back in 
high school ball, Roger has ful- 
filled promises of hitting stride 
this season. He scored a touch- 
down in the Bears game, in ad- 
dition to other carriers. He is 
probably the most deceptive back 
on the club. 

JOHN GAZOURL\N— fullback 
—Senior— 5'8— 196 — Fitchburg. 
The injury to Gazourian was a 
blow that will hurt UMass for a 
couple of weeks. John is the most 
powerful back on the squad. He 
is very powerful and a hard man 
to bring down. He is a member of 
QTV fraternity. 

VIN CAPUTO— center— Senior 
— 6' — 211 — Winchester. Vin was 
another of the Redmen hurt 
Saturday, but his injury- may 
keep him out most of the season. 
In his sophomore year he was 
also sidelined, that time with a

ters at center for UMass and his 
loss will be felt. He's a member 
of SAE. 

MIKE SALEM — Halfback- 
junior— 5'10— 158 — Wakefield. 
Mike has good speed and plenty 
of hustle. He will see plenty of 
duty as a defensive halfback al- 
though he is also a good runner. 
Mike also participates on the 
varsity track team as a broad 

JERRY CULLEN — .senior— 
5'1 1—198 — Woburn. Jerry was 
one of the bright lights in last 
fall's forward wall. He was 
named on the All-Yankee Con- 
ference second team. He is strong 
on defense and will hold down 
the left guard position. Jerry 
will be a strong contender for 
Conference honors again this 
year. He is a member of Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon fraternity. 

MIKE DINEEN — halfback— 
5'10 — 164 — Saxonville, Mike is a 
speedy halfback who broke away 
on several sparkling long ground 
gainers as a freshman. A good 
hustler, he should improve with 
experience and could be a "sleep- 
er" among the halfbacks. 

DICK HOSS— fullback— senior 
—5'9— 194— Rockland. Dick was 
top. fullback last fall, and one of 
the better punters on the club. A 
good strong runner, he's also one 
of the best defensive men in U- 
Mass lacrosse history. He's in 

KEN KEZER — sophomore- 
halfback— 5'10— 162 — Waltham. 
Ken has plenty of speed and was 
a top ground gainer as a fresh- 
man. With experience he could 
develop into a top breakaway 
threat. He's in SAE.

A "rough, rugged contest" will 
await Coach Chuck Studley's ris- 
ing grid team as they prepare for 
Saturday's clash with AIC at 
alumni field, Saturday. 

Although "Stud" is quite 
pleased with the offensive and 
defensive play shown so far by 
the Redmen, ho will have some 
serious difficulties to overcome. 
Both Vin Caputo and John 
Gazourian will miss the contest 
with Coach Gay Salvucci's AIC 
squad, the center and fullback 
having suffered knee injuries in 
the Maine victory. Sophomore 
Matt Collins will fill in for 
Caputo, who is probably out for 
the remainder of the season, and 
Dick Hoss should be able to hold 
down Gazourian's spot. 

The Redmen will have four 
sophomores in their starting 
lineup, Saturday. Besides Collins, 
halfback Sam Lussier, guard Tom 
Brophy, and end Paul Majeski 
will be seeing plenty of action. 

All four of these sophs played 
outstanding ball for Coach Dick 
MacPherson's frosh team last 
year, and are living up to Mac's 

Coach Salvucci of AIC was on 
hand for the Portland clash last 
Saturday and was particularly 
impressed by big Paul Majeski.

day, they can't afford them, for

As in the past, the best cross

Among the pace-setters in the 
YanCon could be the Redmen 
from Massachusetts. 

Freshman cross country at U-

fine record of last season when 
the little Redmen placed second 
in New England. Coach Cobb re- 
ports that at present he has six- 
teen frosh prospects, about ten 
will be kept. 

The team's initial home stand 
will be a tri-school competition 
with Boston Univ. and UConn on 
Oct. 14. If Cobb's speedsters can 
place in the top three of the Yan

to a berth in the nationals.

Jerry West Turns Pro; 
Called ' 'Complete Player ' ' 

The most sought after player 
in college basketball today is the 
"complete" player— the man who 
can do everything. There's little 
doubt that that's just what West 
Virginia has had for the past 
four years in the person of Jerry 

According to his team's men- 
tor. West was tops in scoring, 
rebounding, playing defense, set- 
ting up plays, and being a leader 
on the court. In all these things 
he displayed the consistency that 
earmarks him for stardom in the 

Jerry, from Cabin Creek, W. 
Va. (pop. 850), was recently 
drafted by the Minneapolis 
Lakers of the N.B.A. Jim Pol- 

lard, Minneapolis coach, is only 
too pleased with having made 
him the N.B.A.'s second draft 
choice. Those of you who saw All 
American W»st perform in the 
recently televised Olympics can 
easily see why. Along with Cin- 
cinnati star Oscar Robertson and 
Ohio State's Jerry Lucas, West 
led the Ignited States to an im- 
pressive 8-0 Olympic record. 

The pros agree that Jerry will 
be a standout for the Lakers and 
will give them the boost they 
need to climb to the top of the 
Western division. 

Although only 6'3", West was 
a tiger on the boards in college 
and will be a constant rebound 
artist when he enters pro ball.

A spur of the moment applica- 
tion was the first step in captur- 
ing the Miss Massachusetts crown 
for Barbara Feldman '61 of Kap- 
pa Alpha Theta. The night be- 
fore she noticed an announce- 
ment of the contest at Shopper's 
World in Framingham and felt 
the urge to enter it. 

The next day, June 17, after 
working at the Natick Country 
Club, she selected a bathing suit 
and gown and arrived for the 
contest at 7 p.m. 

She was one of 21 contestants 
from various towns and cities in 
the state. Ten of these were chos- 
en for the finals after being 
judged on poise and beauty. 

After two more eliminations, 
Barbara was chosen Miss Massa- 
chusetts and crowned by Miss 
Greece of 1959. This honor was 
not a • first for the Feldman 
family. Barbara's sister, now 
Mrs. Daniel Bock, was Miss Mas- 
sachusetts of 1953. 

Barbara's prizes included $500, 
which she spent on a wardrobe 
for the Miss Universe Pageant. 

July 1 the girls from New 
England and many of the Euro- 
pean representatives flew by jet 
to Miami, where they were greet- 
ed by their hostesses and many 

Activities of the Pageant start- 
ed when each girl was presented 

in her native and state costume. 
Barbara was dressed as a Pil- 
grim and presented the city of 
Miami Beach with a cranberry 
scoop magazine rack. She was 
chosen among the 15 finalists. 
Finally, Miss Utah was crowned 
Miss U.S.A. 

Barbara comments, "As I look 
back on the contest I think it 
was probably the most wonder- 
ful experience I've ever had. I 
think it was so wonderful to live 
with a girl from another country 
for ten days and make so many 
wonderful friends." Miss Maine,

Religious Issue Topic 
Of Sen. Flanders Talk 


The second in a 
formative lectures on the coming 
presidential election was given by 
Senator Flanders in the Council 
Chambers, S.U., at 4:00, Wednes- 
day the 21st. The topic covered 
in this lecture is one of the upper- 
most questions in the minds of 
those interested in the November 
election. That is, how will the re- 
ligious issue affect the race for 
the Presidency. 

A fundamental question on 
which Senator Flanders agrees 
with the Papacy is that moral 
considerations are the ruling con- 
siderations in relationships of 
people with each other. The Sena- 
tor believes that moral problems 
must be met and solved before 
practical issues can be resolved. 
However, since the Roman Catho- 
lic point of view believes that the 
Holy City is authoritative in ap- 
plication of the moral law, many 
people wonder what stand Ken- 
nedy will make. 

Certainly, as it was pointed 
out, Kennedy has often stated 
that he would use his own con- 
science as President of the

situation was compared to a car-

followed the lecture, in which 
such questions, as— Will the relig-

some make a protest vote against

when it was wondered if Nixon's 
Quaker beliefs would alter our 
military situation. Many other in- 
teresting and vital questions were 
raised, all of which were intel-

Unless an amendment is added

Air Force 
Duty Fixed 
At 4 Years 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

All non-flying Air Force of- 
ficers will spend four years on 
active duty. The United States 
Air Force issued a statement 
that all men who enlist in the 
advanced Air Force ROTC pro- 
gram after Ja-'uary 1, 1961 "will 
be required to serve for a period 
of four years after initial entry 
to active duty." 

During. an interview, Captain 
Constantino emphasized that the 
new program was for the mutual 
benefit of both the Air Force and 
the officer. Under the present 
system, many brilliant officers 
are denied the right to choose 
missile operation or missile main- 
tenance because of the short pe- 
riod of mandatory active duty. 
Because of the time required for 
the Air Force to train officers in 
these and other similar positions, 
he does not have enoTigh time left 
in the Air Force to make this 
training worthwhile. 

If an officer does not show 
himself to be worthy of a posi- 
tion of great importance during 
basic training, he now can do 
nothing about it. If, however, he 
has at least four years to spend 
in the Air Force, he has a very 
good chance to better his posi- 
tion. Also, he would have a much 
better opportunity of being 
placed in the field of his first 


university's athletic program. He 
refeired to the situation of hav- 
ing only one football field for 
the 80 intramural football teams. 
The Ways and Means commit- 
tee provided for the new Business 
Administration Building which is 
scheduled to be under construc- 
tion by September of 1962. It 
will be built at the present site 
of Alumni Field, so unless the 
new football field is ready, U- 
Mass won't have any football 
field the year after next. 

The land must have sub- 
terranean drainage, be filled in 
with loam, levelled, graded and 
seeded before the field will be 
ready, he said. 

McGuirk also pointed out that 
construction between the brook 
flowing into Campus Pond and 
Theta Chi Fraternity house and 
the construction of Lincoln 
.Apartments reduced the area 

available for the athletic program 
from 35.6 acres to 18.5 acres. The 
new land behind the Curry Hicks 
Building includes 14.5 acres. 

Referring to the need of the 
new Physical "Education Building, 
McGuirk said that the present 
200 locker facilities are maximum, 
and reported very crowded con- 
ditions when 190 students come to 
take the lockers used by the stu- 
dents in the previous class. He 
expressed deep concern over the 
fact that there are only 14 show- 
ers available for the classes aver- 
aging 190 students. 

McGuirk said that they canncyt 
train or issue equipment to the 
400 Stockbridge students who 
also pay for the $10 athletic fee. 

He said the building, which 
was constructed in 1931 to handle 
about 200 students, couldn't ade- 
quately handle the 1,800 fresh-

R.D.'s To Produce 
Pulitzer Prize Play 

The Executive Board of the 
Roister Doisters has chosen 
Thomas Wolfe's LooA- Home- 
u>ard. Angel, adapted for the 
stage by Ketti Frings, as the 
1960 fall production. 

Look Homeward, Angel was 
the winner of the Pulitzer Prize 
in playwriting for 1958 and of 
the New York Critic's Award as 
the best play of the season. The 
play, adapted by Miss Frings 
from the last third of Wolfe's 
novel, published in 1929, deals 
with the Gant family: Eugene 
Gant, whom it is claimed was 
Wolfe's self-portrait; Eliza Gant, 
Eugene's mother, a woman ob- 
sessed by her material belong- 
ings; W. O. Gant, the father and 
stonecutter imprisoned by his 
failures; Ben Gant, the brother 
who never brok^ away. The mood, 
alternating between sardonic 
humor and grief, and its inten- 
sity, have* made LooA- Homeward, 

Angel into what many call "an 
authentic American cl a a a i c." 
Richard Watts of the New York 
Post called it "One of the fineat 
plays in American dramatic 
literature." Jahn McClain. in the 
New York J o urn a l-American, 
wrote "Quite simply, one of the 
best 'Evenings I've ever had in 
the theatre ... it should remain 
a milestone in our time." 

Casting for Look Homeward, 
Angel will be held in Machmer 
E-14 and E-16 from 7-9:30 p.m. 
on Wednesday and Thursday, 
September 28-29. Anyone inter- 
ested in working on production 
crews will be able to sign up at 
this time. Freshmen are urged to 

The final production will be 
given Thursday through Satur- 
day, November 17-19, under the 
direction of Arthur E. Niedeck, 
professor of speech, advisor to 
the Roister Doisters. 

The Air Force has already put 
this program into operation for 
certain other groups of men.

These Have Disappeared. 

Stealing anything, whether it be large or small, is a 
serious offense ... no matter how you look at it. 

Pilferers have victimized the Student Union bookstore, 
according to Augustine J. Ryan, manager, for quite some 
time. The above photo is typical of the missing at the end 
of a rush period su<*li as last week's. Unbelievably, such 
major items as textbooks have been taken. The list length- 
ens as the handy pocket-size items like pens, erasers, and 
various other supplies are added. These are taken regular- 

The kleptomaniac, the guy with the slight of hand, and 
the petty thief — all are, according to that timeworn ex- 
pression, cheating themselves. But it's true. 

Bookstore profits are broken down into allotments, one 
for the Student Union improvement fund, another for the 
expansion of the bookstore. Stolen articles mean a loss in 
profit, as well as an added expense for the SU purse, in 
order to replace this merchandise. Since the Student Union 
is run by and for the benefit of the students, it is evident 
that the student who pilfers is taking something out of one 
pocket to put in the other. All he might get by this transac- 
tion is a jolt of smugness. 

At the same time he is risking his reputation and put- 
ting to stake a sense of security and a sense of belonging 
to the campus community. Student probation or expulsion 
is not impossible. "The student caught pilfering in the book- 
store," Robert S. Hopkins, Jr., the Dean of Men, said, "will 
most certainly be put on probation. This probation could 
be for an indefinite period of time. The student may also 
be put on suspension indefmitely or even expelled from the 

Is this worth the risk? 

With the start of each semester, a controversy 
arises which grows progressively worse as the year 
wears on. Indeed, we saw the first dawn of that con- 
troversy flash upon the editorial page this past 
Monday. One amongst us found cause to question the 
oaliber of the food thrust upon him last Friday night 
at the Commons. The dissidence within our academic 
atmosphere has narrowed itself down to the dining 
halls and their product. 

Our controversy is an ancient one. Students have 
questioned the cook's ethics here long before most 
of us saw dawn's rosy fingers. Perhaps it is time 
to dismiss these constant dining complaints as 
mere folly; but this dismissal should be a CRUSH- 
ING o-e. 

Therefore, let us once and for all pose answers 
to the questions themselves. Why are not all the 
foods prepared and cooked as well as they should 
be cooked? Many reasons present themselves. You 
may judge for yourselves those answers which are 
to be digested as valid and those to be dis«irded. 

In answer to the question: could it be that there 
is student help, otherwise not authorized to tend or 
prepare food, doing cooks' work? Could it be that 
there are hired help who lack cooks' ratings but 
nevertheless prepare our meals? Could it be that 
there are men with cooks' ratings who are doing 
janitor's work while a student hired to wash waste 
barrels is taking care of your peas and potatoes? 

Why is it that occasionally there is not enough 
food from the regularly scheduled meal to go around 
and substitutions must be made for the last forty 
people in the Commons line? The reason? Could it 
be that there are janitors on campus who are given 
priority over students in getting their meals first 

and those said meals can be eaten free of charge, 
maybe? Could it be that those janitors aren't con- 
tent to feed only themselves and bring their wives to 
dinner also ? 

Students ponder the reasons why the University 
bookstore has to be the one to make the "6%" profit 
to support the Student Union overhead. Why must 
the profit be made from our hard earned, summer 
cash? Could it be that the Commons doesn*t have 
the heart to make a profit from the many, many 
citizen organizations which meet on our campus and 
for whom the Commons folk gladly and freely give 
of their time to cook the organizations' meals. But 
this is only fair; after all, these groups are com- 
posed of income earning men and women while we 
are only students knee deep in loans — part of which 
we hand over for the "6%" bookstore profit. 

Why is it that none of the dining halls ever see 
those tenderloin steaks ? The kitchens receive dozens 
of sides of beef and from every two of them there 
should be cut ten loins. Somehow they never make 
it to our plates. Could it be that the janitors are 
served these morsels? With such confusion existing 
within one of the largest and most expensive institu- 
tions on campus, the University has seen fit to em- 
ploy a full-time officer from housing to check up on 
rooms and counselors. 

With our dining questions finally answered with 
more questions, let us now put aside this nonsense. 
Granted, the food is not enough at times, it is poor- 
ly prepared at times, and it is not always of the 
highest grade. But at least we have reason to sus- 
pect why these conditions exist. For now, reach for 
that tray, don't drop that fork, and dig in, for to- 
morrow ? 

In Changing Times 




The Umie Spirit 

Nothing is more effective in building up the spirit of 
the team, and, for that matter, the spirit of the fans, than a 
lively football rally. It has been the custom here at Umie- 
land to stage a rally belli nd the Student Union previous to 
each home football game. The voices of exuberant UMass 
students at these rallies have been known in the past to 
carry for miles, so it should be a simple matter for this 
year's larger student body to make itself heard and feared 
in nearby Springfield, where, no doubt, the AIC campus 
will be holding its own rally. 

So let's get out of our dorms at 6:45 tonight and give 
some added heart to our footl)all squad. Then get out to 
Alumni Field en masse Saturday at 1 :30 p.m. and witness 
the devastating effect of our rally on the AIC crew. 

— B. L. G. 

As the needs of man have changed, so have his 
institutions. Instead of treading the long path of 
history to prove this thesis, however, I feel it suf- 
ficient for us to look back a relatively few years. 
Since the late thirties, there has perhaps been no 
more significant man-of-change in our country than 
President Roosevelt. Seeing the injustices that 
the laissez-faire society of "rugged individualism" 
had created, the liberal mind of Roosevelt sought 
out necessary changes in existing institutions. Gov- 
ernment emerged as the guardian of the rights of 
the "little man"— rights that had been trampled 
upon with ever increasing ferocity following the In- 
dustrial Revolution. Instead of merely being a pas- 
sive regulator, government constituted an active and 
vital force. Society was molde<l for the good of the 
whole and not the few, the true Liberal concept. 
And so it was that the essential dignity of man, 
which had lain dormant in America, for half a cen- 
tury arose under the stimulus of one who under- 

It is significant, however, that the innovations 
of Roosevelt came about not as a preconceived plan 
but as a reaction to the effect of existing situations. 
(It is obvious that Social Security would never have 
come about without the adverse effects of the In- 
dustrial Revolution and the subsequent machina- 

tions of Big Business.) Thus, as situations are ob- 
viously in a constant state of change, so must man 
adapt himself to this change. 

It is evident that America must meet the chal- 
lenges of the new situations in the twentieth cen- 
tury. And what are these challenges? They are, I 

(1) The emergence of Soviet Russia, Communist 
China, and the Communist block of nations. 
This needs the most serious consideration. 

(2) Atomic energy and its uses. 

(3) The condition of our economy and the role of 
government as a force in this economy. 

(4) The emergence of the newly independent, "un- 
committed nations." 

These are not necessarily listed in the order of 
their importance. Each of the issues will take on 
more or less significance as the over-all picture 
changes. That these four do constitute the most 
important aspects of our times is, however, obvious. 
One need not be overly perspicacious to realize that 
the successful confrontation of these problems is a 
prerequisite to the freedom, indeed the very sur- 
vival, of mankind in the years to come.

{Author nj "/ Was a Teen-age Dwarf "The Many 
Loves of Dobie GilUs", etc.) 



Today, if I am a little misty, who can blame me? For today I 
begin my seventh year of writing columns for the makers of 
Marlboro Cigarettes. 

Seven years! Can it l)e possible? It seems only yesterday I 
walked into the Marlboro offices, my knickers freshly pressed, 
my cowlick wetted down, my oilcloth i)encil box clutched in 
my tiny hand. "Sirs," I said to the makers of Marlboro-as 
handsome an aggregation of men as you will find in a month 
of Sundays, as agreeable as the cigarettes they make -mild yet 
hearty, robust yot gentle, flii)-top yet soft pack-"8irs," I 
said to this Ms.^eriiblage of honest tobacconists, "I have come to 
write a column for Marlboro Cigarettes in college newspai)ers 
across the length and breadth of this great free land of America." 
We shook hands then— silently, not trusting ourselves to 
speak-and one of the makers whipped out a harmonica and we 
sang sea chanties and Imbbed for apples and played "Hun, 
Sheep, Hun," and smoked good Marlboro Cigarettes until the 
campfire had turned to eml>ers. 

"What will you write about in your column?" asked one of 
the makers whose name is Trueblood Strongheart. 



"Alwut the burning issues that occupy the lively minds of 
college America," I replied. '^Alunit such vittil (pi'estions as: 
Should the Student Council have the i)ower to levy taxes? 
Should i)roctors be armed? Should coeds go out for football?" 

'•And will you say a kind word from time to time al)f)ut 
Marlb(,ro Cigarettes," asked one of the makers whose name is 
Honor Hrigbt. 

"Why, bless you, sirs," I replied, chuckling silverly, "there 
IS no other kind o.' word except a kind word to sjiy about 
Marlboro Cigarettes -the filter cigarette with the ulifiltered 
t^iste- that happy combination of delicious tobacco and ex- 
clusive .selectrate filter-that joyal companion in fair weather or 
foul — that joy of the purest ray serene." 

There was another round of handshakes then and the makers 
stpieezed my shoulders-and I sfpieezed theirs and then we each 
scjueezed f.ur own. And then I hied me to my tyi)ewriter and 
began the first of seven years of colunming for the n.akers of 
Marlboro Cigarettes. 

And today as I find myself once more at my tyiK'writer, once 
more ready to l)egin a new series of columns, perhaps it would 
be well to explain my writing niethods. I use the term "writing 
methods" advisedly because I am, above all things a methodical 
writer. I do not wait for the muse; I work every single day of 
the year, Sundays and holidays included. I set myself a daily 
quota and I don't let anything prevent me from achieving it. 
My quota, to l)e sure, is not terribly difficult to attjiin (it is, 
in fact, one A\ord per day) but the imiK)rtant thing is that I do 
it every single day. This may seem to you a grueling schedule 
but you must remember that .some days are relatively easy— 
for example, the days on which I write "tfic" or "a". On these 
days I can usually finish my work by noon and can devote the 
Test of the day to happy pursuits like bird-walking, monopoly 
and smokmg Marlboro Cigarettes.

Redmen Set To Force Aces 
Hand; Host AIC Saturday 

by W. JOHN LENNON '61 
Chief "Chuck" Stiidley and his Mahonoy and Joe Meucci. 

Redmen warriors will attempt to 
make their 1960 home debut a 
winning one when they enKajje 
American International College 
tomorrow at 1 :30 at Alumni 

Though UMass trimmed Maine 
last Saturday, Studley isn't tak- 
ing this game lightly. During 
Tuesday's meeting of the Quart- 
erback Club, the head coach com- 
mented, "we're very much afraid 
of them (AIC)." 

Tomorrow's skirmish will also 
be a big test for Coach Gay Sal- 
vucci's men. This encounter will 
the Aces' initial game of the 
season and one of the toughest 
on their schedule. 

During the week the Aces have 
been emphasizing the passing 
game, both offensively and de- 
fensively. After watching IT^M's 
quarterback, John McCormick, 
pile up 179 yards via the airways 
last week, Salvucci has been giv- 
ing his secondary defenders add- 
ed sessions of pass defense. 

The AIC signal callers may 
also be doing quite a bit of 
throwing themselves. If the stal- 
wart line of the Redmen holds as 
well as it did in the Maine game, 
the Aces may have to take to the 
air to move the ball. 

The Aces have two men who 
can take care of this assignment. 
Big Dick Glogowski, who is mak- 
ing the switch from halfback, and 
Joe Sei-A'idio have been hitting 
their targets regularly during 
this week's drills. 

UMass will also have to con- 
tend with the strong, but danger- 
ously thin line of the c!ab from 

The Aces' backfield combina- 
tion features fullback Andy Grif- 
fin, second highest scorer in 
New England last year. His run- 
ning mates are halfbacks John 

The reserve units for UMass 
will probably see plenty of action 
in the contest. Studley will be 
trying to wear down the Aces, 
who only have a 2G man squad. 

During the week left halfback 
Mike Salem was promoted to the 
starting unit. The junior from 
Wakefield has shown continued 
improvement throughout the 
practice sessions. 

Two other new starters in- 
clude Matt Collins and Dick 
Hoss. Collins, a sophomore, will 
be replacing Vin Caputo, who is 
out for the remainder of the sea- 
son. Hoss will attempt to fill the 

shoes of John Gazourian, who is 
nursing a knee injury. 

Bob I'\)ote has also joined the 
first unit. The junior letterman 
will be in the left tackle slot, 

UMass holds the edge in the 
serie:? with a 3-1-2 mark, al-

Booters Travel To New 
London For Initial Clash 

by DAVE W 

After watching Coach Briggs 
.set his Soccer team through their 
i>aces in the final wann-up prior 
to their game with 
Guard oil Saturday afternoon, 
one can apureciate the predica- 
ment he's in. 

On the eve of hi.s first game 
tw >tl!l puzzl.-d a.s to who will 
oiiipiise hi.s starting line-up. 
Ve.-^torday Jie had his charges 
.scriMiiJiage the Fie.-^hman team, 
wit'i the result being the Frosh 
111. :\) a stiff battle, which must 
have ;3uinrised the varsity, to say 
t!. ■ 

• 1-. a.s they were hard- 
Picsiel to !-pep up the pace set 
by frivolous Freshmen. 

Coach Rrigji^s have winced 
more than once from the side- 
lines as he saw the invad- 
ing his team's defense throughout 
tlie work-out. However it must be 
said in the Varsity's behalf that 
they were trying out many of 
their reserves throughout, as the 
coach wanted to take a look at 
his bench strength. 

Once the more experience*! 
boys got in as a unit they began 
to click and their chances against 
the men from New London 

Although Mr. Briggs i.s not 
sure of his .starting line-up, man 
for man, he does have a pretty 
good idea whom he is going to 
choose from. 

First looking at the front hne 
and working from tho outside in; 
at the wing positions there are 
three main candidates. Stam 
Paleocrassas seems to be almost 


a sure bet at one extreme. That 
leaves Weeks and Packard to bat- 
tle it out for the other end. 

At one inner we have Andy 
Psilaskis, co-captain who is one 
sure starter. The other inside slot 
is a battle between Graves, 
Tzellas, and DeFillipj, with the 
latU'r .sf.-niing to have the inside 

At center, returning letterman 
Kowell seems to have it just 
about sewed up. 

As to the three vacant halfback 
jobs, which have proven to be 
coach Brigg's strongest headache, 
the sextet from whom the able 
mentor has to choose from in- 
cludes: Repeta, Amundson, Van- 
Ambraugh, Richards, Kendra, 
Mraz, and maybe Chuck Hulett, 
the other co-captain, who can 
fill in here or at fullback. 
Whether coach Briggs pulls 
these names out of a hat or 
\^hat, it certainly is a tough de- 

Besides Hulett at fullback 
Hawes, Anable, and Aksionczyk 
are all vieing for the fullback 
positions. Hawes seems to be al- 
most a certainty for one side. 

Although Worsh has been ab- 
sent from the last few practices 
he could very well be Mr. Stop- 
It for the first game. His chief 
opposition for the goalie slot 
comes from, who will 
probably be the second man. 

The booters will travel to the 
Coast Guard Academy Saturday 
for their first clash of the season.

by WARREN RICHARD '64, Collegian S.aff Reporter 

A little-known 52-year-old Vo- 
cational Training Law that 
states that cities and towns not 
offering specific vocational in- 
struction for any resident must 
pay one-half of the tuition and 
tran-.po.tation to another com- 
munity offering such a course, is 
blooming into a controversy 
which might eventually land in

Has Meeting At SU

Unification Is 
Discussed At 
Newman Club 


Rev. John O'Donoghue, a teach- 
er of moral theology at a Boston 
seminary, spoke on the ecumeni- 
cal movenvent to members of the 
Newman Club last Wednesday 
evening at the Dining Commons. 
The word "ecumenical" is de- 
rived from the Greek word mean- 
ing universal. 

Pope John XXIII has an- 
nounced the preliminary prep- 
arations to form a great ecu- 
menical council, to be held 
around 1963, for the purpose of 
reconciling the Catholic-Protes- 
tant rupture. This is only the 
twenty-second council in the 
Catholic church's long history. 

The Vatican has welcomed all 
suggestions from bishops, 
churches, and monasteries which 
might help in the unification of 
Christians all over the world. 
Som€ of these suggestions have 
included the use of the ver- 
nacular in services, clarification 
of the relationship between the 
Church and State, and the role 
of the lay person in the Church, 
permission for deacons to marry, 
and the reformation of the Index 
of Prohibited Books. 

Reverend O'Donoghue asked 
Catholics to be well informed and 
useful members of society. He 
said this is the essential meaning 
of the ecumenical movement. 

the Attorney General's office. 

The controversy began when 
the Aubum School Committee re- 
fused to pay tuition amounting 
to $900 for two of its high school 
graduates who applied for admis- 
sion to Worcester Industrial 
Technical Institute. The Auburn 
School Committee unanimously 
supported superintendent of Au- 
burn schools. Dr. John H. Got- 
schall's decision of recommending 
no action, by a vote of 5 to 0. 
"But the State Department of 
Education oveiruled us," said 
Gotschall. "They said that we are 
responsible for the tuition and 
transportation, even though both 
boys have already gone through 
Auburn schools at town expense. 

The controversy is where does 
the responsibility end. Dr. Don- 
ald C. Abbey, chairman of the 
Auburn School Committee, said. 
"We feel that the town's respon- 
sibility has ended. If the boys 
had wanted to go to vocational 
school as undergraduates we'd 
gladly have paid for it. But now 
that they've graduated we don't 
feel our taxpayers should pay 
any more. We feel the boys 

should pay for it themselves." 

Several other school systems 
hold the same opinion: 

Mitchell L. Spiris, director of 
administrative services fop the 
Lexington school system said, **It 
seems to be a ridiculous situa- 
tion. Four years ago we paid the 
tuition and transportation for a 
Lexington High graduate while 
he attended the University of 
Massachusetts to study agricul- 

The Bedford school superin- 
tendent, John Glenn, is not now 
paying for advanced technical or 
vocational training for any of its 
graduate.^. "But when I was in 
Canton the town paid tuition for 
the wife of a town employee to 
study practical nursing. I think 
we have to set a limit some place. 
We just have to get some sort of 

But for every superintendent 
who questioned the law, there 
were several who supported it. 
Dr. Henry F. Trainor superin- 
tendent of Ludlow schools said: 
"I think it's a very generous law. 
It could be abused. We don't

UMass Given Fourteen 
Million For Improvements 

The House Ways and Means 
Committee today reported a 
capital outlay for the 1961 fiscal 
year. The bill as recommended 
includes a twenty year bond au- 
thorization for $24,900,000. The 
U. of M, will receive a total of 
$13,906,000 covering seven pro- 
jects. The increased classroom 
space will permit a total enroll- 
ment of 7,000 students by Sep- 
tember, 1961 and 8,000 in 1962. 
Of this total, $400,000 will be 
for improvements and additions 
to the power plant and utilities, 

$1,945,000 for the construction of 
a Natural Resources Lab. and 
class building, $1,600,000 for 
construction of an addition to 
the Food Tech. Building, $1,900,- 
000 for construction of a new 
Dining Commons, $2,100,000 for 
construction of an addition to the 
Physics Building, $3,661,000 for 
the construction of the fourth 
section of the Science Center, 
and $2,300,000 for the construc- 
tion of two dormitories. 

This bill was read in the House 
today (Sept. 23) and will come 
up for debate on Monday, Sept.

This week Dr. John W. Lederle arrives 
on campuo to assume the responsibilities, 
and the headaches, that go with the presi- 
dential post here at the University. He will 
be the fifteenth president in the history of 
our 97 year old Federal Land Grant school 
and a successor to the well-remembered and 
"controversial" fourteenth president. 

It is large footsteps that our new presi- 
dent is called to fill. His predecessor, it may 
be remembered, had won the admiration of 
many by his efforts and determination to 
bring the University to new heights. One 
might say — we have been pulled up by our 
bootstraps, and we're on the horse. We want 
to win the race; that is, we want to see 
UMass develop into an intellectual and cul- 
tural center capable of producing well-quali- 
fied, and vigorous leadership and know-how 
for the nation. 

It is thus fortunate that Dr. Lederle 
comes to us with a background rich in ex- 
perience. His record has included such posi- 
tions as: professor of political science at 
Brown University, attorney, state comptrol- 
ler and head of the Michigan Department of 
Administration, as well as posts on several 
government committees. Prior to his ap- 
pointment to UMass, he was professor of 
political science and director of the Institute 
of Public Administration at the University 
of Michigan. 

At the same time we are proud to have 
Dr. Lederle come to a campus with a new, 
up-to-date look — with a look of progress 
created by nearly a decade of determination 
and effort spent by our administrator in pro- 
moting an expanding university system. 

We whole-heai'tedly welcome Dr. Lederle 
and his family to Amherst and the Univer- 
sity during this early autumn week. We hope 
that he will find his presidential term here 
gratifying. We also look forward to his com- 
ments and his statements concerning his 



While the editorial condemning theft in Friday's Collegian is 
quite true on a more general plane, and theft is rather universally 
considered a Bad Thing, its various ramifications should be carefully 
considered, as should the particular circumstances surrounding the 

Consider our present University environment with its 5500 stu- 
dents. In a society of this size some degree of regimentation is in- 
evitable, but the University authorities seem to have adopted re- 
gimentation with the eagerness of a band of West Point drillmasters. 
hidividualism is being methodically destroyed by our conveyor belt 
education of R.O.T.C. and titanic lecture classes. Students ar^ sink- 
ing into such an apathetic sameness that even the couples are drawn 
up in sorried i-ank«, oscillating in unison on the steps of the women's 
dorms, resembling something from the R.O.T.C. drill field. 

The only act left to the student seeking to retain his individual- 
ism is — theft. Taken in the context of this monolithic university, theft 
actually builds character, for it is the only thing not yet engaged in 
by large organized groups supervised by authority. It is the sole field 
left to individual enterprise. Theft should not be condemned, for it 
performs an important function which the University should but does 
not; it develops the individual potential. 

Neither, I hasten to add, should it be encouraged officially, for 
with official encouragement would follow official supervision and 
eventual direction of theft. South College would assume control and 
thus would all its beneficent effects be lost.

To the Editor: 

"We will keep faith with you who lie asleep." 
Recent developments seem to indicate that faith 
is paying off, at least as far as the commuters are 
concerned. Rumor has it that this group is coming 
back to life. Tho last two meetings of the Commu- 
ters' Club have been blessed with a surprisingly large 
turnout. Congratulations to the membership! 

Another indication of new life is the sudden in- 
terest in the coming elections for Senators to rep- 
resent these students. Nomination papers for the 
four openings have thus far been obtained by at 
least five individuals. Simple subtraction indicates 
that the Russian (you remember last year's election 
where only four people ran for the four openings) 
ballot is disappearing from campus. Let's hope it 
never returns. 

Since there will be a selection this year, the 
commuters can no longer sit back and use the ex- 
cuse that the results don't depend on the voting. 
They are being faced with a challenge: Can they 
turn out in a sufficient number to show that they 
really appreciate the fact that they have a choice? 
Will only 40 students show at the polls again this 
year? Will they let themselves be subjected to such 
a disgrace again? Commuters, I'm from Missouri 
so you'll have to pinve you won't. How? Vote I 

Well, it's been a long week — our first full one on campus. First 
we had Dean Hopkins address the Fraternity Presidents. Exciting? 
The pinnacle! During the course of the meeting he had some very im- 
portant words to say: "Hello there, kiddies . . . this is Big Brother 
Bob( not to be confused to Emmery) . . . Er, you there, coming in the 
door. You'll have to stop that this minute. Why? Because it just isn't 
proper to enter a meeting of this sort being carried by three pledges 
. . . Now if we can get down to business . . . Hey, you! The guy who 
just walked in with the football uniform and cleats on himself. A 
fraternity president showing up in such garb! ... I don't care if you 
do have a note from Coach Chuck ... A note from Warren, too? 
Well why didn't you say so, sweetie." 

At about this time, he discovered a thirst and turned to his as- 
sistant and said, "Do me a favor, Billy, and go out and get me a 
glass of water? ... No, don't bother first running over to South Col- 
lege to punch in your time card!" 

This went on for several hours till finally the dean urged the 
fraternities to get off the defensive and start bragging. At which 
time there came such comments as: "Say, terrific", "Splendid idea. 
Bob!", "About what?" 

Moving from flie fraternal castles to the men's dormitories, I 
assume by now most of the tripled rooms are eliminated. Still, there 
are many who will always remember the last triple room in Van' Meter 
for the '59-60 year. There were these three fellows who absolutely re- 
fused to bo separated; they were attached to each other, I guess. No, 
they were not government majors nor did they have plans of defect- 
ing to Russia if that's how your mind is running. 

Anyway, they refused to clean the room . . . almost forestry 
majors, they were. Thriving off the dirt of the land. But th(< boys 
had real pride in their soil. Why they even insisted on the door be- 
ing locked at all times so as to prevent any dirt from blowing out of 
the room. But I suppose if you lived with it long enough, it almost 
grew on you . . . especially the fungi in the comer. Readily adaptable 
to either pajamas or Property Of's. Ash trays? Never used them! 
They were proud to .say they were the only room in Van Meter with 
wall to wall filter tips. 

But alas the boys were divided. It seems the one who never got 
up and instead slept the day around, wrapped up in a mothy grey 
blanket, disappeared within the room one day. It was several days 
before the other two discovered he was missing. They immediately 
reported such to their counselor, an ROTC major. He made them go 
back to their room and reappear in full uniform before he'd hear their 
plea. Several days later when they found the said uniforms under 
the previous year's Gordon Linen towels, the counselor led a platoon 
into the room but could not penetrate sufficiently the thick brush. 
Finally, it was Chief Red Blasco who led the charge (taking I.D.'s as 
he went along) that brought about tl^p discovery of the shifting, 
whispering sands in room 132 in Van Meter. 

Thus, if today you happen to wander into the lobby in Van Meter, 
you can see hanging from one wall . . . that old, mothy, grey blanket! 
under which is a plaque, placed there by the of '63. It reads: 
"Taxation w'thout relaxation is tyranny." With this in mind we here 
honor Frank Mold "who gave his life in the name of freedom of bac- 
teria growth and soil erosion on the first floor. North, Van Meter." 

No tears, please. Let's avoid that cheap physical stuff! Turning 
away from the sublime, we see that President Eisenhower was faced 
this week with the most crucial decision of his two terms. Should he 
attend the U.N. General As.qembly or the Eastern States Exposition ? I 


Our Friend James Joyce, by Mary and Padraic 
Colum (Doubleday & Co., 1958), offers to the read- 
er a fairly interesting biography of the noted au- 
thor of Portrait of the Artist, Ulysses, Finnegan's 
Wake, and other famous modern works. We see 
Joyce as a "shabbily dressed, penniless, lewd- 
spoken youth whose disreputability was striking be- 
cause of the witticisms that rose out of it," a con- 
ceited, often impudent, insulting, and condescending 
fellow known, moreover, as "Kinch the knifeblade" 
to his friends. We see him sometimes in a light, 
humorous mood — a comedian among friends and a 
singer of Dublin folk music. ("Of all writers of to- 
day, Joyce has probably the keenest appreciation 
of the humor that arises out of everyday life," says 
Colum.) At other times, however, he appears as a 
sensitive and dedicated writer involved in his dreams 
of reforming literature. 

This is during his youth. After a long series of 
unpleasant and nerve-wracking incidents resulting 
in his failure to get Dubliners (his first novel) pub- 
lished, Joyce, disappointed and disgusted, left Ire- 
land permanently for Trieste and there became ex- 
posed to a bread-earning grind and financial diffi- 
culties which threatened to hinder his creative 

During this period in his life, an inner mutation 
took place in Joyce which was significant in the 
life of James Joyce the artist. In his writing he 
changed from a dialectician to a revealer of the 
epiphany. He also began to develop a "literature of 

Later years confronted Joyce with a great deal 
of personal pain and sorrow. He was becoming blind 
and had to undergo many painful operations on his 
eyes. He also had to deal with the emotional illness 
and the gradual mental derangement of his only 
daughter. The last time that the Colums saw him 
(1939) Joyce appeared "sad, lonely, and resigned" 
with "the lonely, patient look of the blind in his 
eyes." Joyce died in 1941 in Zurich. 

Mary and Padraic Colum's account of this, the 
life of James Joyce, is well-written and informative. 
At some points in the book they relate the char- 
acters and incidents in Joyce's works to Joyce's own 
personal experiences. To the reader familiar with 
Joyce's works this is interesting and meaningful, 
but to anyone unfamiliar with Joyce's writings some 
of It might appear obscure and uninteresting. Many 
long, detailed passages, moreover, devoted to de- 
scribing friends of James Joyce and even people 
only slightly connected with him, seem quite unnec- 
essary and detract from the main subject of the 

*'It is easy in the world to live after the world's 
opinion. It is easy in solitude to live after one's 
own; but the great man is he who in the midst of 
the crowd keeps tvith perfect sweetness the inde- 
pendence of solitude."

State House . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
As the House today took up 
the $23,900,000 capital outlay 
program and a study order for 
salary boosts, including a $1300 
raise for legislators, the knotty 
question of the closing date for 
the 1960 Legislature remained 

Although a tentative date of 
early next week has been set for 
prorogation, two factors may 
frustrate legislators eager to 
begin campaigning for reelection, 
and could result in a House re- 
cess while the Senate works. 

One is the firm determination 
of Senator William D. Fleming 
(D-VVorcester) to scrutinize all 
money hills thoroughly before 
his committee on ways and 
means makes a recommendation 
to the main body. 

This policy paid off last yeiir 
for taxpayers when the Fleming 
committee held up the budget 
until revenue figures were in 
and obviated the need for new 
taxes by cutting the appropria- 
tion bill by millions. 

The other factor is the current 
investigations by special Senate 
committees into charges of irreg- 
ularities in the state highway 
division and the Metropolitan 
District Commission made by 
Democratic State Auditor Thom- 
as J. Buckley. 

Senator Maurice A. Donahue 
(D-Holyoke), majority leader, 
had his committee interviewing 
highway officials last Saturday 
in an effort to complete the study 
and report to the Senate by the 
first of the month. The committee 
has until Oct. 11 to report but it 
is not called upon to make re- 
commendations for legislation. 

This also applies to the MDC 
investigation being conducted by 
a committee headed by Senate 
President John E. Powers CD- 
Boston). However, President 
Powers has stated at the current 
pubic hearings that changes will 
be made in the MDC administra- 
tive set-up and this would require 

filing of legislation and action 
thereon by the Legislature. One 
committee member says the MDC 
report will be filed Thursday. 

Rep. William J. Kingston CD- 
Springfield), vice-chairman of 
the House ways and moans com- 
mittee, will have the task of ex- 
plaining why his committee cut 
nearly $35,000,000 from the $58,- 
662,000 capital outlay program 
recommended by Governor Fur- 
colo last January. Many of the 
Governor's proposals are dear to 
the hearts of legislators in dis- 
tricts which will benefit. 

Further, the joint rules com- 
mittee has approved the .study 
order reported by the ways and 
means committee which wrapi)ed 
up in a single package 46 bills 
carrying salary raises for scores 
of state officials, including 
judges. There is no question that 
attempts will be made to pull 
special bills from it for action. 

Once the House completes ac- 
tion on this legislation the sup- 
plementary budget, usually the 
last major financial bill before 
prorogation, will be actt'd u.oon. 
Here again, Fleming is commit- 
ted to a thorough examination 
particularly in upgradings and 
re-classifications of jobs that ac- 
tually mean pay increases. 

Another stumbling block for 
the capital outlay program is the 
Fleming statement that he will 
strive to devise means of financ- 
ing capital expenditures to pre- 
vent an increase in the net debt 
of the state. This could be a 
time-consuming process as the 
Senate leadership is definitely 
against any new taxes. 

The sudden deaths of two Su- 
perior Court judges, and prior 
single vacancies in the Supreme 
and Superior Courts, has placed 
Governor Furcolo in a more ad- 
vantageous position to deal with 
the Legislature. Awaiting action 
by the Senate ways and means 
committee is a House-approved 
bill to add six more judges to the 
Superior Court. It has been held 
up because a check disclosed 

there are insufficient votes for a 
.six-judge bill but there may be 
enough for three judges. 

CuiTently the House ways and 
means committee has 26 meas- 
ures, including tideland measures 
involving millions in proposed 
construction. The Senate commit- 
tee has about 40 bills including 
one to increase the weekly com- 
pensation benefit for idle work- 

It is expected that Governor 
Furcolo will send in his supple- 
mentary budget by Thursday, 
with debate probable next week. 

The Governor's bill to reduce 
from $1000 to $100 the amount 
permitted for negotiated con- 
tracts, recommended as a result 
of the MDC incjuiry. has been 
going through the Legislature 
but many legislators believe the 
ceiling is too low and will add 
unnecessary expense.

The law itself has drawn little 
public attention. But the subur- 
ban population rise has brought 
many more education-conscious 
people to superintendents' oflices. 

The State Department of Edu-

Redmen Open Home Season, 7-6, Over Aces 

Bamberry Conversion 
Provides Slim Margin 

by W. JOHN LENNON '61 

John Bamberry's talented toe 
produced the margin of victory 
Saturday afternoon as Massa- 
chusetts dealt the Aces of AIC a 
7-6 defeat before 6,000 fans at 
Alumni Field. 

The Redmen broke into the 
scoring column with seconds re- 
maining in the first quarter and 
Bamberry's conversion projected 
the Redmen into a 7-0 lead. The 
Aces came roaring back with a 
six pointer of their own before 
halftime but failed on the all 
important two point conversion 


Throughout the remainder of 
the afternoon each team was con- 
tented to stay on the ground and 
attempt to grind out the yard- 
age. The stalwart defenses of 
both squads, however, stiffened 
considerably when the opposition 

During the final half the Red- 
men forward wall held the Aces 
to a total of 33 yards on the 
ground. AIC couldn't accomplish 
anything via the airways either, 
as they were stopped with minus 
yardage. Not to discredit the 
UM line, but quarterback Dick 
Glogowski and fullback Andy 
Griffin were forced to play the 
entire 60 minutes and obviously 
tired in the final half. Griffin, a 
205 lb. bulldozer, and Glogowski, 
a converted halfback, accounted 

for two thirds of AIC's rushing 

UMass scored the third time 
they had possession of the ball on 
a drive which started on their 
own 41. After the Redmen drove 
to Lhe Aces 21 the attack bogged 
down momentarily. Then on 
fourth down John McCormick 
hit Harry Williford on the 9. 
Roger Benvenuti then carried 
twice and finally tallied on a 
plunge from one yard out. 

Kicking specialist Bamberry 
then showed the fans why he's 
good to have around as he split 
the uprights to give the local 
gridders a 7-0 advantage. 


The Aces climbed back into 
the battle midway in the second 
period, on a 76 yard march. The 
drive was climaxed when Glo- 
gowski uncorked a 17 yard pass 
to John Mahoney on the UM 19. 
The fleet footed halfback then 
outdistanced two defenders and 
galloped to the end zone unmol- 

The men from Springfield then 
elected to try for the two point 
conversion which would have 
given them the lead. Mahoney 
sprang himself loose in the end 
zone but Glogowski's pass missed 
its mark by a couple of feet. . . 


The fighting Redmen, sporting 

halfback who did much of the 
carrying for the Redmen in 
Saturday's game, is brought 
down after a short gain as Sam 
Lussier and Wayne Morgan 
look on. 

a 2-0 record, now set their sights 
on Harvard next week.

Cnaih Gay Salvucci of AIC 
gambled and lost in Saturday's 
Rame. With the Redmen out in 
front 7-6, Salvucci chose to try 
for the two point conversion. The 
Aces' signal caller, Dick Glogow- 
ski, missed John Mahoney in the 
end zone, and sealed the fate of 
AIC's hopes. 

Although both teams played 
a good defensive game, it ap- 
peared to this writer that the 
UMass tribe wasn't quite up to 
par for the clash. It may well 
have been over-confidence on the 
latter's part. In the long run it 
appeared that, considering the 
limited depth of the AIC squad, 
the Redmen were outclassed by 
their opponents. 

It's a sure bet that overconfi- 
dence won't enter into the picture 
next week when the Massmen 
travel to Harvard Stadium.

the Ivy League crown away

Although H. C. grabbed a 
quick lead on the ojiening kick- 
off, the men from Cambridge, led 
by all-Ivy I^eague quarterback 
prospect Charlie Ravcnel, fought 
back to gain the victory. 

The Jeffs from across town 
scored a victory by a surprising- 
ly large margin over Springfield, 
21-6. Coach Jim Ostendarp's for- 
ward wall was a big factor in the 
Jeff victory. 

Despite the return of fullback 
Jim n -owning to the UConn line-

up, the Huskies were unable to 
offset the Eli's of Yale. With 
about two minutes to go in the 
game, UConn had the ball on 
the Yale 42 yard line, but a series 
of incomplete forward passes 
stopped their drive and the Eli's 
won, 11-8.

Soccer Team Loses, 
Prepares For Clark 

The University Redmen soccer 
team was repulsed in their ini- 
tial effort of the season against 
the Coast Guardsmen at New 
London Saturday afternoon. 

According to Coach Larry 
Briggs there were several rea- 
sons for this resounding defeat. 
They included some glaring er- 
rors, which can be attributed 
mainly to lack of condition and 
experience. Of course the main 
reason was the fact that the 
more powerful and experienced 
N.nv Londoners were just too 

Co-captains Chuck Hulett at 
center halfback ami Andy Psil- 
akis at right inner were the 
standouts for coach Brigg's 
squad. Chuck Ropeta at left half- 
back also played a good game. 

Actually the Redmen had just 
as many chances as their oppon- 
ents but they lacked that all im- 
portant fast foot and big toe to 
put it in the nets. 

Although the game was not 
overly interesting from a spec- 
tator's point of view, it did serve 
to give Coach Briggs an insight 
into some of his team's weak- 
nesses he was not aware of pre- 
viously. For one thing he thought 
his team was in pretty top con- 
dition, but the coach reported 
that Coast Guard had at least 
seven players with more speed 
than anyone on the Massachu- 
setts roster with the po.ssible ex- 
ception of Chuck Hulett. 

The coach now has something 
(iofinite to work on in practices; 
more conditioning and trying to 
iron out .some of th»' more ob- 
vious weaknesses and errors. 

With the first game behind 
them now and, by the way, pro- 
bably one of the roughest teams 
they will have to face, Coach 
Briggs hopes with this added ex- 
perience the team will make a 
better showing at Clark next

ASIS Conducts 
European Safari 

by MARK NATAUPSKY '64. Collegian Staff Reporter 
Visit Europe while you earn a European Country as well as 

money says the American Stu 
dent Information Service (ASIS). 

The ASIS was created in 1956 
to promote better understanding 
among the people of different na- 
tions through practical applica- 
tion, educational and recreational 
activities. To accomplish this, 
American students are placed in 
remunerative summer jobs in the 
European countries, and by con- 
ducting a unified program entit- 

Before the ASIS, students who 
desired to travel in Europe had 
two choices. Either they could 
travel on their own, or they could 
join a tour. Each method had its 
own unique disadvantages, but 
both were extremely expensive. 
ASIS eliminated these disadvan- 
tages, while it offered many ad- 
vantages of its own. Since ASIS 
is a non-profit organization, it 
can conduct inexpensive tours of 
various duration. In addition, 
ASrS participants have the op- 
portunity to get to really know 

the people in it. They do this 
by working side by side with the 
people of the various countries 
in jobs ranging from construc- 
tion work to office work. At the 
same time, they are earning mon- 
ey at the same rate as the people 
of that particular country. 

includes such items as a round 
trip flight with hot meals, and a 
reception and orientation upon 
arrival in Europe. Well in ad- 
vance of the time of departure, 
members receive a set of lan- 
guage records to enable them to 
learn basic foreign language 
phrases. An ASIS student mem- 
bership pass entitles all con- 
cerned to discounts on many 
items while in Europe. Summer 
jobs, for those who want them, 
are arranged by ASIS for a dura- 
tion of either one month or two. 
All participants are also fully 
covered by health and accident 
insurance during the entire trip.

Dietel Says Fay Rate 
Hinders UM Growth 

News Associate 

Editor's note: T}ih is the first in a series of articles offering the 
opinions of prominent individuals on various facets of UMass educa- 

"The rate of faculty turnover at the University of Massachusetts 
IS not overly alarming" stated William M. Dietel, Associate Dean of 
Men at Amherst College. Dietel, himself a former assistant professor 
of history at UMass, stated that every campus is feeling the effects 
of faculty "raiding" by competing institutions and industry. "All in- 
stitutions will witness a large personnel turnover in the next fifteen 
years, for the rate of increase of openings on faculties will increase 
not arithmetically but geometrically in years ahead." 
UMass Cannot Compete For New Faculty 

Dietel added, "The University of Massachusetts, however, is at 
a distinct disadvantage with competing institutions in terms of the 
low salary scales. Legislative appropriations must come about if the 
University is to compete for faculty. 

"In California, for instance, the statewide university system there 
can successfully raid from other schools because of its pay offerings. 
Their Davis branch is one that has been able to go from an agricul- 
tural school into a liberal arts college with a top faculty". 
Reasons For Faculty Resignations Cited 

Dietel stated he did not believe that young instructors come to 
the University with the idea of staying only a few years while they 
gain experience, before moving to a "better" institution. "I will grant 
that you will find most of your turnover at UMass is among the 
younger faculty", he added, "but I believe they originally came with 
every idea of staying because it is a growing, moving, rapidly chang- 
ing place, full of excitement. They later leave because of poor salaries 
cTuntered'"''''^ P'-omotion policies, and from other frustrations en- 

tinu.w'.^'''^^^"^ 'llL^ ^^?''^ shortages are widespread, and c<,n- to increase. "Mass lecture courses are a frequent result. These 
large se. .ions bring about a diminution of the quality of education 

really don t matter", he continued. "But it is the man in the middle, 
he average student, who gets hurt. These educational drones take 
t^rn'rr'' T P^««.^^«»r <^«"rses, but really do nothing more than 
turn higher education into a bookkeeping process with so many cred- 
its, courses, and letter grades. 

Mass Lecture Dangers Listed 

"A large is fine as long as every student is following the 
argument at hand, but if one it he cannot ask questions In 
every classroom there must be constant teacher student interchanges, 
even if they are unspoken in the mass lecture courses. The faculty 
members who can communicate with every member of a large lecture 

small class is inferior to a good profe.s.sor in a large .section.

The Revelers have inaugurated 
a new program this year to en- 
able them to work clo.ser with 
the freshman class. Each one of 
the men's and women's dormi- 
tories have elected a representa- 
tive to the Revelers from the 
residing freshmen class. This 
group of thirteon freshmen will 
comprise the "Freshmen Activi- 
ties Council". They will serve as 
contacts between their and 
the Reveler.s, and will be called 
upon for advice and assistance 
with various Reveler-sponsored 

The first meeting of this new 
group will take place on Thurs- 
day, September 29, at 11 a.m. in 
the Student Union Building. It 
is hoped that each of the dorm 
repre.sentatives will be present. 

Officers of the Revelers are: 

Wes Honey and Joan Knowles, 

co-chairmen; Mary Jane Stack, 

secretary; and Jay O'l^eary, 



The legislation proposed by the 
Governor increases the present 
Board of Trustees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts by three — 
the Commissioner of Public 
Health. Mental Health, an<l one 
other to be appointed by the 
Governor with the consent of the 
Council from a list to be sub- 
mitted by the Massachusetts 
Medical Society. 

The cost of the expanded faci- 
lities at the Shattuck Hospital 
and the medical school building 
is estimated at $17 million, of 
which at least $3 million dollars 
in available in federal funds. 

The Governor has recom- 
mended that the $14 million be 
appropriated out of the surplus 
of approximately $20 million 
which has become available as a 
re.sult of prudent executive 
management and the cooperation 
of all departments and agencies 
of the state government in pur- 
suit of maximum economy. 

The Governor stated that by 
appropriating this sum directly 
out of general revenue, for the 
first time Massachu.setts will be 
taking effective steps toward 
limiting future debt obligations 
of our citizens. 

The Governor's special message 
states that the need for a medical 
school arises from the need for 
more general practitioners and 
the rapidly increasing demands 
by our people for more medical 

"The situation in which we 
now find ourselves is serious and 
we cannot look elsewhere for 
help. It is not a theoretical pro- 
blem about which we can aflford 
to temporize. If the proportion of 
doctors in the community is to be 
kept from slipping dangerously 
during the population growth of 
the next ten to twenty years, the 

output of doctors must he in- 
creased, it is estimated, by more 
than 40 per cent throughout the 
nation. In June the Association 
of American Medical Colleges 
gave to a congressional subcom- 
mittee data on shortages in man- 
power and money. Along side the 
facts presented by such experts 
is the more practical, personal 
knowledge that comes to almost 
any of us when we have an em- 
ergency need for the services of 
a doctor. 

"Under such circumstances we 
become sharply aware of how 
overworked is this dedicated 
group in our population. These 
pressures, this stretching of our 
medical personnel resources are 
not going to become better, they 
can only become worse unless we 
act now. It takes at least three 
year.s, experts inform us, to plan, 
build, and staff a medical school, 
and there is a lag of five more 
years before its first graduates 
can be expected to hang out 
their shingles. I wish to em- 
phasize that it would be a mini- 
mum of eight years before grad- 
uates of such a school will be 
ready to serve their communities. 
I therefore stress the present ur- 
gency for action to fulfill our 
responsibilities to the people of 
the Commonwealth in this very 
crucial area of medical care."

Democratic Candidate 

Education", at UMass this Thurs- 
McLaughlin, who has been a 

member of the Boston City Coun- 
cil for the past seven years and 
the only member to be elected to 
the presidency of that body 
twice, will be sponsored by the 
Political Science A.ssociation 

To Tour Campus 

The Democratic candidate was 
appointed a U.S. Attorney in 
1950 and served in that position 
until 1953 when he was elected to 
the Boston City Council. 

McLaughlin's talk will concern 
recent advancements in city re- 
development plans. The talk will 
aK:o include a discu.ssion of the 
.serious shortage of e<lucational 
facilities and the action taken to 
relieve the situation. 

He will speak Thursday at 4 
p.m. in the Council Chambers of 
the S.U. Before his talk, he will 
be given a tour of the UMass 
campus and will meet informally 
with members of the faculty. 

McLaughlin's visit should be of 
special interest in view of the 
forthcoming November elections. 
Members of both political parties 
are invited to attend. 


Some Good Signs 

Last spring a controversy arose when the 
selections for the Maroon Key and Adol- 
phians were chosen. At the time it was as- 
serted that fraternity politics dominated the 
selections system and that it was time for 
something to be done to clean up the two 
groups by bringing in a new selection sys- 

Action against the Keys was taken by the 
RSO Committee, which ordered them to 
cease operation until constitutional viola- 
tions had been straightened out. The Keys 
did just this. They are now to be congratu- 
lated for the fine job they have done help- 
ing at football games, rallies, dances, and 
carrying luggage for the girls. The indica- 
tion that they will continue to serve their 
function as a service organization by work- 
ing on such tasks as the campus elections is 
a happy note indeed. 

The selections of the nine Adelphians 
also raised some questions last Spring, par- 
ticularly since they were all fraternity men 
and four of them from the same house. But 
if Adelphia continues to organize and follow 
through, as they have thus far with such 
things as the registration dance and the foot- 
ball rallies, there can be no grounds for 
criticism. Certainly they are to be congrat- 
ulated for the fine job Friday night. The 
football rally was, by far, the best organized 
and most successful that this campus has 
seen in recent years.

To the Editor: 

Being occupants of room 132, Van Meter, last 
year, the authors of this letter c/»n testify that our 
room was not the Augean stable that Mr. Trelease 
implied in his column last Monday. He was un- 
doubtedly speaking for room 134, next door to ours, 
where a remarkable biological experiment was con- 
ducted during the first semester, involving the de- 
velopment of a micro-organismic society ruled by an 
army of spiders. As a result of this, our own room 
became a sort of jumping-off place for those visit- 
ing the menagerie, and later when the experiment 
got so out-of-hand that the door to room 134 had to 
be kept locked, the tourists would throng into 132 
to hear the tread of arachnoid feet on the cinder 
block wall. We would be pleased if your readers 
would note this confusion of room numbers, since 
people have recently begun to avoid us. 

Sincerely yours, 

Charles H. Nelson

To the Editor: 

There may be found on the University campus 
two most serious hazards—potential threats to the 
student body. The following action may be expected 
in the near future. 

First, the old, rickety stairs behind the new in- 
firmary will be closed off. Trespassing will not be 
permitted. Such an occurrence has resulted from the 
present condition of the stairway . . . without a 
doubt insecure and unstable. The steps have deter- 
iorated; when wet, the danger is immeasurable and 
at night there is little lighting. Consequently, the 
students will have to use the paved hill road. 

Second, in reference to the North Parking Lot's 
condition, the Superintendent of Maintenance, has 
stated that he would do everything in his power to 
improve the existing situation— a maze of torn pave- 
ment, loose timbers, deep ruts, and uncovered sec- 
tions of rock and mud, Due to the present construc- 
tion on this site the Superintendent has been unable 
to put special improvements into effect. 

Thanks go to the superintendent for his interest 
in the student problems, his support, and co-opera-

Every member of the Collegian editorial staff 
IS requested to attend a meeting tomorrow at 
11:00 A.M. in the Collegian office. 

Every century has its moments of significance, and in the 
twentieth century there is but one short period of time that 
stands above any other: the days and weeks of 1917. This 
period encompassed the Russian, but, more significantly, the 
Bolshevik, Revolution. It is unnecessary to delve into the 
foreign and domestic complications of the revolution itself; 
suffice it to say, the revolution was consolidated and a new 
theory of government arose based upon the ideas of a Ger- 
man, Marx, and a Prussian, P^ngels. 

It is not without significance that, although the feelings 
in capitalistic countries crystallized into open opposition to 
the Russian regime (as evidenced by American intervention), 
prevailing opinion took the revolution with tongue in cheek. 
It is not difficult to see why this was so: after all, what were 
the Russians but a large ami geographically divided horde of 
illiterate peasants? 

As the new nation grew and prospered under the "dicta- 
torship of the proletariat," new methods were utilized for 
the improvement of agriculture and industry. The "five year 
plans" began to show results, as did the collective farms. 
The new methods however, were not brougbt to bear with- 
out a loss of life and individual freedom. 

In some cases the peasant-farmers revolted, but even- 
tually succumbed to the will of the government. And thus, 
the "great experiment" progressed amidst the watchful and 
suspicious eyes of the world. 

And what of the pre.sent? ffhe former nation of illiterate 
peasantry, disunity, and chaos is now the first nation mili- 
tarily and economically the fastest growing nation in the 
woHd. Those theories upon which a capitalistic society is 
built are in violent contradiction to the ideas of Marx and 
Engels. History has indeed shown that the stntus-quo must 
inevitably giv j way to the moving and vibrant force; it is 
now clear that the capitalistic society must defend itself 
against the pretensions of Marxian socialism by means of 
intelligent modifications of existing capitalistic institutions. 

I trust that we shall act wi.sely. 


The Soviets, under their numerous economic plans, have 
achieved a growth rate of about dVr per annum as compared 
to the S7f maintained by the United States. This is in part 
due to: 

1. Their making up of war losses 

2. Limited consumption 

3. The fact that they started from a lower base 

4. Intense simplification and standardization of products. 

From mere empirical knowledge we know the advantages 
of economic growth. During the last century, the per capita 
output of this country has quintupled. This growth has been 
reflected in our society; this economic growth has created, 
from the poorer classes, a bourgeoisie which lives com- 
fortably. Physical labor has been greatly lightened and much 
leisure has been opened to the working classes. In addition, 
the remainder, or the "margin," was used by government to 

establish social services and a public education system. We 
see this economic basis reflected in our standard of living. 

We are now, however, at a crucial juncture in this growth 
problem. To see this, it is necessary to contrast the char- 
acteristics of American and Soviet growth. First, how does 
the American consumer benefit from this growth? Look 
around, since we are now in prosperity (although at this 
writing we find ourselves with almost 6% unemployment and 
with steel mills operating at 507*- capacity.) You see shiny 
fins amidst weird conglomerations of carefully twisted 
steel; you see cosmetics that defy description: eye cream, 
ear cream, throat cream, fingernail cream, etc. You find 
yourself snickering? Read on and see that we spend: 

1. More on cosmetics than on sanitation 

2. Eight times as much on liquor as on water supplies 

3. Twenty-five per cent more on automobiles, gasoline 
and auto-servicing than upon education 

This is growth ? 

Do not misunderstand me, my friend. I'm not for un- 
rouged women clad in dreary gray garments, but I am for 
the taking of a part of that expenditure (which goes toward 
ephemeral delights) for the purpose of reinvestment, for 
capital investment is a key to successful growth. This rein- 
vestment, of course, would be toward those industries of im- 
portance to the national welfare. To facilitate this diverted 
and increased capital investment and problems of this nature, 
man has (conveniently) set up institutions. In this case, the 
institution is called the United States government. 

DO OR die: 

Socialistic heresy, you say!! Yet, we must take action to 
insure a higher capital investment in industries which have 
long-lasting importance to the state of the nation. There is 
no getting around this for, as scientists know, . . . what comes 
out has a direct relation to what goes in. Thus, economic 
growth has the direct relation with capital investment. 

As for Russian growth, it is obvious that the Soviets de- 
vote a considerable amount of their economic output to invest- 
ment, notably in the moi-e significant industries. Personal 
consumption of a Soviet citizen is about one fifth that of 
ours. In their planned economy, the Soviets are on our 
economic heels. We may thus do one of two things: 

1. Encourage limited governmental contix>I over basic in- 
dustries as in England and the Scandinavian coun- 
tries, or 

2. Stagnate under the auspice^ of the National Associa- 
tion of Manufacturers and similar groups which have 
as their principle chjective the maintenance of the 

We must realize that the capitalism of Adam Smith is not 
the capitalism of the present. This is because we have had 
to adjust to changing conditions. If our society refuses to 
adjust, it must inevitably decline and fall before the on- 
slaught of history. 



State of the Univ 

(Continued from page 1) 

Commenting on the Univer- 
sity's rapid growth, he said, "I 
don't think the University should 
increase to 10,000 students yet. 
Going to college is a privilege, 
not a right. One shouldn't in- 
crease enrollments excessively, 
but rather find new and better 
ways to filter applicants. In ex- 
panding in numbers, there is al- 
ways the great temptation to 
lower quality". 

Future Emphasis in Graduate 
Study Predicted 

Asked where he thought the 
emphasis will be directed in the 
future at UMass, Dietel com- 
mented that he expects to see a 
great expansion of graduate 
study in the liberal arts fields, 
with less attention being given 
to the technical schools. As a 
case in point, he cited the UMass 
government department, noting 
its rapid evolution in six years 
from combination with the his- 
tory department to a department 
now offering both the M.A. and

Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.) 


Today's column is directed at those young female under- 
graduates who have recently pledged sororities and are wor- 
ried, poor lambs, that they won't make good. Following is a 
list of simple instructions which, if faithfully observed, will 
positively guarantee that you will be a mad success as a 
sorority girl. 

First, let us take up the matter of housemothers. The 
housemother is your friend, your guide, your mentor. You 
must treat her with respect. When you wish to s{x?ak to lier, 
address her as "Mother Sigafoos" or "Ma'am." In no circum- 
stances must you say, "Hey, fat lady." 

Second, let us discuss laundry. Never hang your wash on 
the front porch of the sorority house. This is unsightly and 
shows a want of breeding. Use the Chapter Room. 

Third, meals. Always remember that planning and preparing 
meals for a houseful of healthy girls is no simple task. Your 
cook goes to a great deal of trouble to make your menu varied 
and nouri.shing. The least you can do is show your apprecia- 
tion. Don't just devour your food; praise it. Exclaim with 
delight, "What delicious pork jowls!" or "What a yummy soup 
bonej" or "WTiat scrumptious fish heads!" or "What clear 

Fourth, clothing. Never forget that your appearance re- 
flects not just on yourself but on the whole bouse. It was 
well enough before you joined a sorority to lounge around 
campus in your old middy blouse and g>'m bl(K)mers, but now 
you must take great pains to dress in a manner which excites 
admiring comments from all who observe you. A few years ago, 
for example, there was a Chi Omega named Camille Ataturk 
at the Uiiiversity of Iowa who brought gobs of glory to all her 
sorors. Camille hit on the ingenious notion of suiting her garb 
to the class she was attending. For instiince, to English Lit she 
wore a buskin and jerkin. To German she wore lederhosen and 
carried a stein of pilsener. To Econ she wore 12() yards of 
ticker tape. Her shiningest hour came one day when she 
dressed as a white mouse for Psych Lab. Not only her Chi 
Omega sisters, but the entire student InxJy went into deep 
mourning when she was killed by the janitor's cat. 

Finally, let us take up the most important topic of all. I 
refer, of course, to dating. 

As we have seen, the way you dress reflects on your sorority, 
but the men you date reflect even more. Be absolutely certain 
that your date is an acceptable fellow. Don't beat aljout the 
bush; ask him point-blank, "Are you an acceptable fellow?" 
Unless he replies, "Yeah, hey," send him packing. 

But don't just take his word that he is acceptable. Inspect 
him closely. Are his fingernails clean? Is his l)lack le^ither 
jacket freshly oiled? Is his ukelcle in tune? Does he carry 
public liability insurance? And, most significant of all, does 
he smoke Marlboros? 

If he's a Marlboro man, you know he has taste and discern- 
ment, wit and wisdom, character and sapience, decency and 
warmth, presence and poise, talent and grit, filter and flavor, 
soft pack and flip-top box. You will l^e proud of him, your 
sorority will be proud of him, the makers of Marlboro will Ije 
proud of him, and I will be paid for this column. 

(gi IttflO Mm ShuUnaa 

The makers of Marlboro, having paid for this column, would 
like to mention another of their fine cigarettes— mild, un- 
filtered Philip Morris— available in regular size or the sensa- 
tional new king-size Commander. Have a Commander- 
welcome aboard. 

"This shift in emphasis, how- 
ever, is done by re-routing money 
and personnel towards graduate 
programs. Graduate education is 
very demanding upon the staff, 
and consequently the time spent 
with undergraduates is cut. A 
professor can work with a very 
small number of graduate stu- 
dents, so that these graduates 
end up reading papers and teach- 
ing undergraduate courses them- 

"Ultimately, everyone is cheat- 
ed", he stated. "The graduate 
students are deplorably slowed in 
their work, and the undergrad- 
uates are seriously cheated in 
terms of aid, care, guidance, and

Quarterback Club Features 
Reports On AIQ Harvard 

"We'll have a game on our 
hands." That was the opinion of 
Coach Chet Gladchuck yesterday 
at the second Quarterback Club 
luncheon in the S.U. Ballroom. 

Coach Gladchuck admitted that 
UMass made many mistakes — 
offensive and defensive — against 
A.I.C. last Saturday. "If they 
play that way against Harvard, 
they'll get beat." 

But the squad has been work- 
ing out to make sure that the 
same mistakes don't happen 
again. John Gazourian attended 
Monday's workout, but he didn't 
suit up, and will not be ready for 

Center Matt Collins, who was 
hurt against AIC will be ready to 
go Saturday, but tackle Ed Bum- 
pus was hurt in Monday's scrim- 
mage and might not be ready for 
action this week. 

Harvard has a small line, aver- 
a^'mg 197 pounds; but the team 
makes up for its lack of lard with 
its speed and agressiveness. 

The smallest man on the squad 
is Charlie Ravenel, the quarter- 
back. He is the spark of the club, 
the key to the Purple offense. If 
he has a bad day, Harvard will 
probably disintegrate. "The only 

way to win," Coach Gladchuck 
said, "is to stop Ravenel." 

Commenting on the chances of 
the Redmen, the Coach said, 
"We'll have to play heads up ball, 
with no mistakes. We'll have to 
be alort every minute of the 
game. Those Harvard backs can 
go all the way in one play. 

"We'd have to play over our 
heads to beat them but we did 
it before." 


There will be a meeting of all 
those interested in trying out for 
the varsity pistol team Thursday 
morning at 11:00 a.m. in RoDm 
lOG of the ROTC building. Team 
Coach Captain Hathaway will be

One of the greatest hitters in 
baseball history is playing his 
final game at Fenway Park to- 
day. Ted Williams has definitely 
decided to retire as an active 
player. Many thought that the 
slugger would remain active long 
enough to pass Jimmy Foxx in 
the all-time home run derby. At 
present, Ted has a total of 520 
homers, which is 14 behind 
Foxx's sum. 

A year ago Ted hit .254 and 
muddled through the worst sea- 
son of his careor. But he wouldn't 
quit while he was down. He had 
to prove to himself and to every- 
one else that he was still the 
same old Splinter. 

So he returned this year and 
ii currently hitting .318 and has 
hit 28 home runs. Not bad for a 
man of 42. 


Tod won't retire completely, 
though. He'll remain as a batting 
coach to assist the young players 
on the Sox squad. 

As soon as Williams' retire- 
ment was made public, rumors 
started circulating that Jackie

With W i 1 1 i a m s' retirement 
hardly off the presses comes 
word that Casey Stengel may be 
in his last season as Yankee pilot. 

The report is that the Yankee 
brass would be pleased to have 
Casey call it a career. The old 
professor, due to his imperious 
and authoritorian ways, isn't 
very popular with the players. 
He's the boss and he doesn't want 
any of the players to forget it. 

When Casey benched Mickey 
Mantle for not running out a 
ground ball. Mantle was fuming. 
The rift between them has grown 
and it may be that there isn't 
room enough on the same squai 
for both of them. Perhaps the 
N.Y. bigwigs think that Mantle 
is more of a drawing card than 
Stengel, so they've hinted for 
Casey to retire.

It looks like the New York 
Giants are off to another win- 
ning season, with their 21-19 vic- 
tory Sunday over the San 
Francisco 4Jers. 

The Patriots have recalled Ger 
Schwedes from the inactive list 
as a result of their second loss 
of the season in three games. The 
Pats lost to the Buffalo Bills, 
13-0, Friday night, in front of 
18,000 Boston fans. 


Schwedes was traded to the 
Titans earlier this season, then 
was given his release by the New 
York Team. The Patriots, a sad 
disappointment to all concerned, 
are in deep need of a sound de- 
fense and hope that Schwedes 
may help fill the holes. The Pats 
had beaten the Bills twice in ex- 
hibition games, previous to the 
loss that counted. 

John Thomas returned home 
recently, proudly displaying his 
Olympic bronze medal. When 
asked if he would compete in the

'n this year's games, and the

just an off day."

WILL HE MAKE IT??? -Phco hv i-.u 

In the first game of the Tuesday nijfht IPC iiilramural contest an unidentified plavor from 
SAE IS being chased by Jackie Reynolds of TEP as two other players look on. 



Intramural Openers 

KS topped ASP by a score of 
13-6 and QTV downed LCA 6-0 
to open officially the 1960-61 in- 
tramural season last Monday 
nig:ht under the lights. In the 
later games of that evening TKE 
mauled PSD 42-0 while last year's 
champions SPE were tied bv 
PiMD 7-7. 

In last night's opening games 
SAE edged by TEP 13-6 and 
AEP rolled by PSK 19-6. 
Kappa Sig, le<l by Quarterback 
Bob Hatch, managed to squeeze 
out a victory over Alpha Sig by 
a score of 13-6. Rod Cor^' scored 
the first TD on a pass from 
Hatch to put KS ahead. Their 
final score came when QB Bob 
Hatch ran for TD. Alpha Sig'.s 
only tally came in the first half. 
In another tight game QTV 
shut out LCA 6-0. The only score 
of the game came when QB Tom 
Callahan pitched a hand pass to 
Jack Morrissey. 

TKE, in the third game of the 
night, completely outclassed PSD 
and literally ran away with thf 
contest 42-0. Although Plii Sig'.s 
team worked smoothly «nd ef- 
ficiently they were no match for 
the big men of TKE. The scoring 
went along evenly^ TKE .^coring 
21 in the first half and repeating 
this in the second half. Quarter- 
back Ed Cronin directed hi.s 
passes to Joe Lerner who scored 
two touchdowns, Henry Mackey 
who also racked up two, and Mike 
Spadafora who scored once. 
Phi Mu Delta came from be- 
hind to tie Sig Ep, 7-7, in Mon- 
day night's last game. Playing 
without the help of their ace line- 
man Bob Romano, SPE just 
could not click. Their only acore 
of the evening came when Quar- 
terback John Long passed to end 
Bruce Wolf for the Touchdown. 

by JAY BAKER '63 

The conversion came as a result 
of a pass from Long to sopho- 
more star Pete Bracoi. PMD only 
.score came when Quarterback 
Ed Durfer threw to Pete Smith. 
Nick Williams caught the oxtra 
point in a similar pass play by 

In the second night of com- 
petitive play SAE capped the 
opener by edging TEP 13-6. 

The first half of the contest 
was very close with TEP .scoring on a magnificent pass play 
from Quarterback Jerry Rason to 
Howie Alperin who had overrun 
the man that was supposed to 
have been covering him. The try 
for the extra point was blocked 
and TEP led 6-0 at the end of 
thf- first half. The second half 
was quite different from the 
first where TEP had held SAE 
to a stand .still. Capitalizing on a 
fifteen yard |>erialty, which 
moved the ball t«» within the 
twenty, SAE scored on a pass 
from Quarterback Connelly to 
his Qni\ Pierce. The conversion 
was missed and the contest was 
tied at six all until the final four 
minutes of the game when SAE 
managed to .score again. Con- 
nelly tossed this TD to teammate 
Tommasetti. The extra point was 
made and SAE led 13-6. TEP 
started to move again late in the 
game but was hindered by penal- 
ties. The players of both teams 
played exceptional games as SAE 
won 13-6. 

The second game of the night 
was between AEP and PSK in 
which the boys from Sun.set 
Avenue outlasted Phi Sig 19-6. 
Manny Hamelburg paced Pi to 
their first victory with to 
Mike KIcinerman and Richie 
Pearlstein. Kleinerman ran for a 
TD to give his team a definite

Outing Club Conducts Hike 
And Cookout On Mt. Toby 

On Sunday, September 25, the 
UMass Outing Club began its 
season with 30 members enjoying 
a hike and cookout on Mt. Toby. 
The weather was perfect for the 
first event of their trip schedule. 
After a short drive to Sunder- 
land the group climbed to Tyler 
Cabin, on a foothill of Mt. Toby, 
owned by the Amherst Outing 
Club, and left the food with a 
few members who preferred to 
bask in the sun or play horse- 

shoes. A one-and-a-half hour 
hike brought the more ambitious 
through the valley and uj) to the 
summit of Mt. Toby. 

After climbing the fire tower 
and surveying the surrounding 
countryside, the group began the 
descent. On arriving at the cabin 
the hikers found that the others 
had a roaring fire ready to roast 
hotdogs. After the meal, a few 

games of horseshoes and a sing, 
all continued down to the cars

Many Unnecessary Expenses

DAVID P. LAWRENCE, Asst. Placement Director 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

David P. Laurence, a native of 
Springfield, Mass., has recently 
joined the Placement Service 
Staff as Assistant Director of 
Placement for Men, Lawrence 
will be responsible for the ad- 
ministration of all official loan 
and scholarship programs avail- 
able to UMass students. 

Various loan programs, which 
have been greatly enlarged by 
the addition in recent years of 
the Mass. Higher Education Loan 
Plan and the National Defense 
Education Loan Plan, were pre- 
viously handled by the Placement 
Office. Scholarship administra- 
tion, formerly handled by Dean 
Fred P. Jeffrey in Stockbridge 
Hall, will also be administered by 
Lawrence under the continued 
guidance of the Committee on 
Financial Aid and Scholarship of 
which Dean JefTrey is chair- 

Students desiring to receive ap- 

plications or to discuss personal 
problems relating to financial aid 
should meet with Lawrence in 
the Placement Ser\'ice Office on 
the second floor of South College. 

Lawrence received his B.S. de- 
gree and his Master's degree in 
Education from Boston Univer- 
sity in 1948 and 1949 respec- 
tively. He was given a Teaching 
Fellowship by the University, 
and taught as a teacher-coach in 
Martha's Vineyard for a year. 

Lawrence has spent the past 
ten years in the Springfield 
School System as high school 
teacher-coach; for the last two 
years he has acted as guidance 
coun.selor at Springfield Tech- 
nical High School. 

A U.S. Navy veteran and a 
U.S. Air Force reservist, Law- 
rence is presently residing in 
East I^ngmeadow, Mass, with 
his wife and their five children. 
He plans to move to Amherst. 

In a much disputed and hotly 
contested session last night, the 
Student Senate passed an amend- 
ed bill which gave the Collegian 
two cameras instead of the three 

The bill as pa.ssed was exactly 
as amended by the Finance Com- 
mittee. The original bill called 
for three cameras: a 4x5-speed 
Graphlex. a 2U x 2>4 Rolleiflex 
Modez F and a 35 mm. The total 
cost of these items would be 

The Finance Committee amend- 
ed the bill, recommending that 
the 35 mm. be dropped because 
it was not urgently needed. 
Linda Achenbach, chairman of 
the Finance Committee, said that 
the Senate couldn't afford such 
an outlay this early in the year. 
She recommended that the Col- 
legian request the 35 mm next 

Sen. Flanders Speaks 
On Political Topics 

The international situation as a 
campaign is.sue was the subject 
of the third in a series of in- 
formative lectures given by Sena- 
tor P'lander.s in the Council 
Chambers of the S.U. last 
We<inesday at 4:00. The Senator 
said that the international policy 
has the makings of a live cam- 
paign issue, but that it hasn't 
reached its full potential. 

It is well-known that our posi- 
tion in world leadership has been 
weakening in the past few years, 
partly due to certain weaknesses 
in Dulles' policy. One defect was 
considered in our military 
strategy. The encirclement policy, 
in which military belong- 
ing to the United States were 
stationed around the world, failed 
for two reasons: many countries 
felt that they had lost the title 
to their own government; we 
were fighting a cold war, not a 
hot one, and it was being fought 
just as hard by the Soviets. The 
Soviet government, however, was 

by DIANE TO VET '64 
Collegian Staff Reporter 

infiltrating countries involved in 
internal turmoil, and offering fi- 
nancial assistance, as well as im- 
porting large .staffs to help those 
countries regain their footing. 
An excellent example of this oc- 
currefl when Nasser of Egypt 
asked the United States for fi- 
nancial aid in constructing the 
Aswan Dam. While we were de- 
bating the issue, Na.s.ser pur- 
cha.sed a few minor war supplies 
from Czechoslovakia. Immediate- 
ly, the State Department can- 
celled all plans of aid, and for- 
bade sending Care packages to 
Egyptian .schoolchildren. Nasser, 
in his need, turned to the Soviet 
Union and was given immediate 
aid. This example also points up 
another weakness in the Dulles 
jwlicy, the lack of morality used 
in the means of accomplishing 
neces.sary ends. Too often eco- 
nomic and humanitarian as- 
sistance was considered merely a 
political support.

FPA Meeting 
Charts Plans 
For October 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

The Fraternity Presidents' As- 
sembly had its second meeting of 
the year last Wedne.sday to map 
the plans of fraternity activities 
for the coming month. The 
limited activity of the annual 
Rushing Convocation was cri- 
ticized. There were suggestions 
to eliminate the movie and to 
have a smoker-type affair, or 
the po.ssibility of retaining the 
movie and following it by a 
smoker-type event. Also dis- 
cu.ssed was whether better re- 
ferees can be secured for the in- 
tramural football games. It was 
commented that there is a dem- 
oralizing effect when a referee is 
a member of one of the houses 
playing in the game. It was also 
reported that the Athletic De- 
partment has done its best to find 
impartial referees. The assembly 
agreed that the games were be- 
ing run as fairly and impartially 
as possible and that the efforts 
of the Athletic Department 
should be applauded. 

The intramural sports are, in 
some cases, governed by new 
rules stated in the new intra- 
mural sports pamphlet. One of 
these rules would bar any par- 
ticipant in a fight over contests 
from intramural sports for the 
rest of the year. 

The I.F.C. reported that it will 
sell ga.s-filled balloons at all the 
major events on homecoming 
weekend: the parade, the rally 
and the game. Representatives 
from the fraternities and sorori- 
ties will be stationed at strategic 
locations at these events to in- 
sure that everyone has a chance 
to buy a balloon and release it at 
the .scoring of the first UMasa 
touchdown. "Buy a balloon, buy 
a book" will be the theme of the 
.sale, the proceeds of which wil' 
be given to the library in order

year. Also, she advLsed the 
Senate that the Collegian photo 
supply costs would be $20-$30 
higher than what they are budg- 
eted for, because of the lack of 
a 35 mm. 

In the discussion of the Fi- 
nance Committee motion. Sen. 
Bill Knowlton said that the Col- 
legian did need the 35 mm to 
cover sports events. He pointed 
out that the 4x5 could be used, 
but the film cost would be high. 
Sen. Donald Croteau introduced 
a new motion which would re- 
place the 2^ x 2»4 Rolleiflex with 
a Japanese model. Much lively 
discussion ensued regarding the 
durability of the Japanese camera 
as oppo.sed to the Rolleiflex. Cro- 
teau's motion was called to ques- 
tion and defeated. 

The Senate again concentrated 
on the Finance Committee amend- 
ment. Proponents of the original 
bill started a drive to get it back 
on the floor. Here Sen. Gail Os- 
baldeston thwarted their attempt 
by calling the question before the 
main arguments for the 35 mm 
camera could be presented. The 
Finance Committee amendment, 
appropriating $617, was pa.ssed 
by a 14-8 vote. 

The Senate also contested a 
bill which called for an appro- 
priation of $45 to pay for ap- 
ples which were purchased for 
the "Big-Little Sister" get-to- 
gether. Sen. Linda Achenbach 
said that the Senate had paid 
in the past and that they 
"couldn't let the giris down now." 
Sen. Donald Croteau asked why 
the boys should have to pay for 
this giris' get-together. The mo- 
tion was passed, however, 12-8. 

In other business, the Senate 
heard the report of the Budget 
Committee. It was revealed that 
the University Bands had peti- 
tioned the committee for dance 
band jackets, higher postage as- 
.sessment and for money to send 
Prof. Joseph Contino to a band 
conference. The Budget Commit- 
tee advised against the jackets 
and the higher postage assess- 
ment but moved to appropriate 
the money to send Contino to the 
conference. The motion was 
passed. Sen. Robert Trudeau 
moved to dissolve the Ad Hoc 
Summer Activities Committee. 
The Senae appropriated $64 for 
the Counselor's Workshop Lunch- 
eon, which took place Sept. 8,

the introduction of Professor 
Grant Snyder of the Olericulture 
Department, who outlined the 
new progressive approach to be 
initiated this year for the promo- 
tion of the Food and Agricultural 

Outlined in detail was the pro- 
gram to reach both prospective 
college students In high .schools 
throughout the State, and stu- 
dents on campus interested in be- 

coming associated with this dy- 
namic profession. This program 
will present the story of modern 
technical agriculture and the vast 
number of opportunities it pres- 
ents. Snyder pointed out that 40 
percent of last year's College of 
Agriculture graduates went on to 
graduate school, and that the 
average starting salary for those 
taking jobs in a variety of fields 
was $6,000.00. 

The highlight of the program 
to be conducted on campus is a 
series of fireside chats, spon- 
sored by Alpha Zeta, to be held 
in the Colonial Lounge starting 
October 6th from 7 to 9 p.m. 
These chats will cover a seven

The Student 's Choice 

Nominations for posts to the Student 
Senate and Student Union Governing Board 
closed yesterday afternoon. According to the 
Senate's latest report 80 to 90 nomination 
papers had been filed for 33 vacancies. 

Competitive interest in the student gov- 
ernment elections has been higher this year 
than in the past. As opposed to the four 
nominees running for the four Senate posi- 
tions last year, there are now eight. The 
women's dorms each offers at least a choice 
between two candidates; most of them have 
from three to five. 

And yet, this degree of competitive in- 
terest must be improved. In the men's 
quarters of the campus there seems to be 
a general indifference and apathy to the 
operation and perpetuation of a democratic 
form of government. Of the men's dorms, 
each of which is entitled to one representa- 
tive, three of them— Hills South, Mills, and 
Wheeler — have only one candidate in the 
race. The losers are also the winners. The 
fraternity houses show about as much verve 
and vigor. According to the Senate election 
percentages and figures, the fraternities are 
to have a total of three seats in the Senate. 
Two nomination papers were submitted. 

Six candidacies have been announced for 
the Student Union Governing Board (SUG) 
which has for the first time this year given 
the student body the opportunity to elect 
three officers, one representative for each 
of the upper classes. Previously all members 
had been appointed. Since this will normally 
be a spring election, the coming week's vot- 
ing will be pro tempore. 

The remaining Senate posts which are 
not up in the election are the nine Senators- 
at-Large. Voted in during the spring, they 
are a means of keeping continuity in the 
Senate. The elections will be held on Tues- 
day during the day in the Student Union for 
fraternity, sorority. Commuter, and SUG 
Board nominees. Voting in the dorms will 
be held during the evening. 

We can feel pleased about the fairly high 
amount of interest demonstrated so far by 
the candidates in the coming elections. It is 
now the students' move to find out in whose 
box on the ballot he'll want to put his X.

a review 

by lorraine gelpey '62 

once upon a time there lived 

a cockroach named archy 

his friend a cat named mehitable 

and the book im going to tell you about 

is called archy and mehitable 

to begin at the beginning 

i shall start by explaining that 

archy was • 

in his last reincarnation 

a vers libre poet 

also since we are starting like this 

i feel obliged to mention 

that mehitable was once cleopatra 

as well as many other illustrious 

women of bygone days 

as a matter of fact 

mehitable was now in her very ninth life 

but this information about mehitable 
although important for background 
does not help to explain 
how the book came to be written 
it all happened because archy 
had the mind of a milton but was forced 
by misfortune of his having 
chosen free verse instead of 
a noble form like iambic pentameter 
to dwell in the ignominious 
shell of a cockroach 
and to gamble 
with fleas and suchlike 

as you might imagine of . 
a cockroach with the abilities 
and inclinations of a homer 
archy was disinclined to leading 
a normal cockroachish existence 

because of said disinclination archy occupied 

many of his nocturnal hours 

at or rather 

to be more precise 

on his bosses typewriter 

in a poetic and philosophic vein 

attributable only to 

the most gifted type of vers libre cockroaches 

archy comments on life from a bugs eye view 

because of the apparent difficulties involved 

archy could not press the 

cap key and the letter keys simultaneously 

so that we find his literature 

lower case and un punctuated 

except in unusual circumstances exclamation 

if you see what i mean 

but enough of the mechanics 

in fact enough of this 


i 11 just mention that 

the bosses name is don marquis 

and that he first 

found an archian 

manuscript in his 

typewriter on an early 

morn in 1916 

whereupon he immediately 

had it printed in his 

column in the new york sun 

doubleday and company has 

seen fit to publish 

a whole mess of the stuff 

in a paperback called 

archy and mehitable 

read it 

its fun 

Commuter students note that you ivill 
now be able to pick up your copy of the Col- 
legian in the Collegian office after 8:00 
P.M. on the day of publication. 

The Iconoclast 


Everyone has his bad day in the week and I guess mine was 
Wednesday. The day started off with the head counselor knocking on 
my door. Right away I'm out of bed and hiding the hotplate and 
electric oven. By this time he's grown weary of knocking and decides 
to walk in . . . with the combination Washer-drier still to be hidden. 
Well, anyway, this counselor walks in followed by his subordinate 
counselors. The first thing I say is, "Look, fellas, if the vending 
machines are in the showers again, it wasn't me this time." six o'clock in the morning you have no idea how motley a 
dozen counselors can look. There was one in full ROTC uniform who 
kept dressing at close intervals, glancing at a clip-board, doing column 
rights, etc.; there were two who started a fist fight over who would 
look at my roomie's Playboy mag; there were three vets who kept 
trying to show color slides on my blanket . . . these slides were taken 
during their various tours of duty such as Japan, Korea, Greece, Mt. 
Holyoke . . . while showing them they all managed to hum in unison 
various bars of "Over There, Over There . . . "(Never take a language 
class with a vet in it because he'll probably use up most of the class 
time by explaining the different places he had been to in Spain, 
France, or Germany. This is done to impress the listeners but it 
actually doesn't, since our society here has little regard for patriots 
now that Frances Powers seems to have embodied enough patriotism 
to absolve us from that duty.) 

Finally these counselors got around to their request, that being 
for me to take a personal plea to the former occupants of Room 134 
in Van Meter to please return. It seems my column plus the after- 
effects of the last season's crops have driven them to erect a tent for 
dwelling in the President's gardens. This might be a bit crowded on 
weekends but . . . Naturally, I refused the counselors' request. 

With them finally hustled out, I turned to find two more counse- 
lors (Phys. Ed. majors) still in the room — one having a chalk ses- 
sion on my sheets with a magic marker and the other ripping my 
pillow cases into strips and applying tourniquets to my sleeping 
roomie . . . who, with one more appropriately placed strip, would be 
asleep for good. Fortunately for my roomie, I evicted them by drop- 
ping a Property Of shirt out of my window and in hot pursuit of this 
they flew . . . neglecting to reopen the screen I had closed. 

Down to zoology I trotted. Wasn't I just settled when all of a 
sudden I hear Alan Dary giving a rug commercial behind me. Turn- 
ing around, low and behold, do I see this frosh holding a transitor 
radio while he's balanced precariously upside down with his head 
hanging over the edge of the seat, his shoulders being supported on 
the seat and one foot, tied to which is the transistor's aerial, pitched 
ceilingward. The weird part about it is that the lecturer is nearsighted 
and all during the class, seeing this limb extended, he kept calling on 
the kid thinking that he had a question to ask. 

But we're ahead of ourselves. The lecture hadn't quite begun 
when my pencil broke and I turned to the girl beside me and asked 
her if I could borrow a pencil. She gives me a look and wants first 
to see my I.D. So, figuring the kid's just had a three hour lab and is 
a little high on the formaldehyde, I show it to her and then she de- 
cides I better sign for it, too. 

Then the prof enters the auditorium. Right away I'm trying to 
place him in relation to someone he looks like. Then it dawned. He 
reminded me of a crew-cutted Pat Bradey ... you know, the guy who 
used to drive the jeep on the Roy Rogers show? "Happy trails to you 
until . . ." Remember? Well, this prof starts off with his usual 32 
introductory "ah's" and finally says, "If you'll remember, class, last 
week we fmished off the wonderful and beautiful story of proto- 
plasm ..." 

Of course, you all remember this "beautiful story", don't you? 
First it was on Broadway where it ran under the title of "The 
Miracle Worker." Jackie Gleason played the lead role as Carbo- 
hydrates, Steve Reeves played Iron, singer Solid Alcohols was handled 
ably by Dean Martin, and Sidney Poitier, in his first bit part, played 
Carbon. And when they made the movie of it, Frank Sinatra got the 
role of Sgt. Epidermis. Even today you can still buy the classic— 
"Percy Faith Plays the Theme from The Beautiful Story of Proto-

MutJ^TiArea Col _^ _ _ 
Form Teacher Pool 


Four neigrhboring institutions 
of higher education — Amherst, 
Mount Holyoke and Smith col- 
leges and the University of Mas- 
sachusetts — have established a 
joint clearing house to recruit 
and furnish teaching assistants 
to their faculties. The assistants 
are drawn from a pool made up 
primarily of women college grad- 
uates who are married, have 
children and can work only part 

Establishment on a permanent 
basis of the Office of Teaching 
Assistance, which is now located 
at Smith College, has been ap- 
proved by the presidents of the 
four institutions after a trial 
operation. During the trial period 
among the requests the Office 
succeeded in filling were the jobs 
of assistant to the director of one 
of the college museums, a re- 
search assistant with special 
knowledge of French and interest 
in Africa, a research assistant 
on a Foundation project, labora- 
tory aides, and readers in art, 

anthropology, English and poli- 
tical science. 

The four institutions agreed to 
set up the Office on a trial basis 
after a questionnaire sent to 
1165 women in Amherst, North- 
ampton, Holyoke and other 
neighboring cities and towns re- 
vealed that many of these women 
had advanced degrees and past 
teaching experience and were 
available to work part time. 

Of the 366 who answered the 
questionnaire 287 were college 
graduates, 76 held master's 
degrees in the arts or sciences, 
and 12 were Ph.D.'s. A total of 
119 had taught in the past. The 
number of women with children 
under six totalled 148 and many 
indicated they would be inter- 
ested in working, if not imme- 
diately, later when their children 
were older. 

The questionnaire was part of 
a study conducted in 1956-57 by 
a committee established by Smith 
College with a $5,000 grant from 
the Fund for the Advancement of 

UMass Has Been Awarded 
Over $75,000 For Research 

Research grants totaling more 
than $75,000 have been awarded 
to the University of Massachu- 
setts in the past three months, it 
was announced today by Dr. John 
W. Lederle, president of the Uni- 

Dr. Lederle noted that during 
the fiscal year just ended the 
University received almost a half 
million dollars in research grants 
from all sources. 

Recent awards, ten in all, are 
for studies in the fields of chem- 
istry, psychology, engineering, 
zoology, and mathematics. Names 
of recipients, titles of projects, 
amounts and sources of awards 
are as follows: Dr. I. Moyer 

Hunsberger, head of the depart- 
ment of chemistry, "Hydrogen 
and bond order in heterocyclic 
and aromatic systems," $25,000 
from the National Science 
Foundation; Dr. Henry N. Little, 
professor of chemistry, "A study 
of the interaction of porphyrins 
and metalloporphyrins with pro- 
teins," $5,290 from the U.S. Pub- 
lic Health Service, National In- 
stitute of Arthritis and Metabolic 
Diseases; Dr. Thomas R. Stengle, 
iuiitrucLor in chemistry, "A spec- 
troscopic study of some Lewis 
acid-base systems containing 
boron-phosphorous bonds," $2,000 
from Research Corporation of 
New York. 

Discrimination In Grading

Professor Phillip Gamble, 
spokesman for Phi Kappa Phi on 
campus, has announced a new 
election of members from the 
senior class. Membership in this 
honor society is made up of stu- 
dents who are in the top seven

The results of a recent grad 
ing study at the University of 
Delaware reveals that "compari- 
son of grade distributions for the 
past five years show them to be 
still too heavily biased on the 
upper side of the scale." Reviews 
of grading practices show there 
should be somewhat equal distri- 
bution of honor grades, credits 
and failures. 

In the 1954 report of the Eva- 
luating Committee to the Com- 
mission on Instructions of Higher 
Education, it was found, especi- 
ally in the professional schools, 
that "Grading which is not satis- 
factorily discriminating usually 
fails to motivate superior stu- 
dents to the highest degree of 
achievement of which they are 
capable because it does not pro- 
vide the incentive to do work of 
the quality usually indicated by 
high grades. 

"The committee noted that in 
some areas where student achieve- 
ment appeared to be the 
highest the grades were lower 
than in some other areas where 
achievement was not high enough. 
One evaluator was informed that 
a teacher at the university was 
agreeably surprised by the im- 
provement made in student work 
when he began to grade more 
conservatively than he had pre- 
viously done." 

A 1958-59 report shows a good 
distribution in university-wide 
areas such as English and mathe- 
matics. There are some depart- 
ments which give introductory 
courses in the sophomore year 
and show higher grades than 
those giving their introductory 
courses in the freshman year. 
Many departments with more 
than half of their grades in the 
upper levels should study and 
may profit from these results of 
the many grading studies con-

stressed here. 

It was also pointed out that in 
coping with this problem certain 
criteria must be met in order to 
set the standard of the upper 
level student. Extra work whose 
completion is at the discretion of 
the student should be presented 
to the class at the beginning of 
the course. It should also be 
made clear that all assignments 
must be completed in order to 
have a right to credit or D. Dig- 
nity should be given to the aver- 
age grade C.

^63 Women 
Pledge ALD 
With 3.5'8 

The Women's Scholastic Honor 
Society for freshman women who 
achieve an average of 3.5 or 
above in the first or second 
semester, increased its member- 
.ship during a pledging ceremony 
held Sunday, September 25, at 
4:00, in the Commonwealth Room 
of the Student Union. 

Miss Curtis and Miss Horrigan, 
advieora of the society, held a 
.'rapper for the members and the 
new pledges following the cere- 
mony at the home of Miss Curtis. 

At the meeting which followed 
Carol McDonough '63, president, 
officiated. Miss Horrigan gave a 
short history and the purpose of 
the organization. Plans for the 
initiation of new members on No- 
vember 6 were discussed. Martha 
Hume '63, was elected by the 
group to the office of vice-presi- 
dent which was left open due to 
the illness of last year's officer. 

Following the Indian Wars by 

Oliver Knight (U. of Oklahoma The United States Army 
was engaged for a quarter cen- 
tury after the Civil War in a 
series of campaigns against 
tribes of hostile Indians in the 
West. The ill-fated Custer ex- 
pedition against the Sioux was 
one of these. Newspaper cor- 
respondents usually accompanied 
these troops and shared their 
hardships and dangers while 
sending back dispatches to their 
papers. It is these "war cor- 
respondents" with whom this 
book is concerned. Many of them 
had adventures unequalled by 
war correspondents who followed 
larger wars before and after. 
But Knight is more concerned 
with analysis of their work than 
were their reports. Where and 
when did they get their informa- 
tion ? From whom? Under what 
conditions? What kind of man 
was each correspondent? It's an 
interesting study. 



Redmen Ready For Crimson; 
Must Stop Harvard's Ravenel 

by W. JOHN 
The Massachusetts "{'"if^htin^ 
Redmen" hope to disprove the old 
ada^e that "lif^htninK doesn't 
strike twice in the same place," 
when they engage Harvard on 
the latter team's home field to- 
morrow afternoon. The UMass 
gridders stunned the Crimson in 
1954, and may well repeat in the 
contest scheduled to start at 2:00 

Two of the most talked about 
quarterbacks in New England, 
Massachusetts' John McCormick 
and Harvard's Charlie Ravenel 
will match their talents before 
the expected crowd of 10,000 to 
12,000. Last year these two men 
directed the attacks of their 
respective teams. The men from 
Cambridge won that battle 
though McCormick pitched three 
long touchdown passes in spec- 
tacular fashion late in the game. 

Harvard's coach John Yovicsin 
has been busy constructing a de- 
fensive *'bomb" shelter all week 
in anticipation of the UMass 
passing attack. The Harvard 
menor has high regard for his 
intra state rival, and recently 
said, "this is going to be a tough 


Massachusetts has a weight 
advantage, but the Johnnies have 
the depth, e.xpcrience, and speed. 
The UM club has been hobbled 
with injuries lately. Starters Vin 
Caputo, center, and John Gazour- 
ian, fullback, will miss the game 
as will Co-Captain Tom Delnickas 
and tackle Ed Rumpus. The local 
gridders are hoping that sopho-

WHO'S GOT IT? This is 
how things looked last year at 
Harvard Stadium as Coach 
Rourke's Redmen went down 
fighting at the hands of Coach 
John Yovicsin's Crimson team. 

The Massmen, scoreless at 
halftime. scored 22 points dur- 
ing the final half due to the 
fine pa.Hsing of John McCor- 

Although their four touch- 
downs weren't enough to over- 
come Harvard's 36 points, the 
Redmen fought hard and ac- 
credited themselves on the 
field. Who knows, things may 
be b<'tter this year.

The glow worm look has come 
to costume jewelry. Marchal, a 
New York finn specializing in a 
fabulous collection of charms, 
teamed with a couple of other 
companies to produce jewelry 
which lights up at the touch of 

Marchal said the light-up jew- 
elry was made possible when 
Sylvania developed a bulb small 
enough to go through the eye of 
a darning needle and P. R. Mal- 
lory and Co. produced a minia- 
ture mercury battery similar to 
the ones used in walkie-talkies, 
hearing aids, and missile guid- 
ance systems. 

Marchal introduced the light- 
ing in nine charms ranging from 
a miniature Santa Claus on a 

chimney to the Statue of Liberty.

New York and Paris fall and 

winter fashion collections.

Paris designers loved the knit- 
ted look for fall and winter. The 
house of Christian Dior showed 
hand-knit sleeves on wool suits. 
Turtleneck collars looked like 
knits but actually were the re- 
sult of a shirring process of the 
fabric itself. One short coat in 
mink came with wool knit sleeves 
— perfect for the woman who 
already possesses all so its of

Fall outerwear accents comfort

ready-to-eat meal on the table. 

Thanks to this latest trend in 
plastic packaging, gourment 
foods can be enjoyed right at 
home. The meal is pre-cooked and 
frozen prior to purchase, and 
there are no cleanup problems 
due to the bag's easy disposabilty. 
Just throw it away after use. 

What's more, the boil-in-the- 
bag meal is now being produced 
in mass volume these days and 
can be obtained from the comer 
grocery store or mail-order cata- 
log — where nearly everything 
from Welsh rarebit to Hungarian 
goulash is literally in the bag. 

Here are some of the reasons 
why this bag is called the hottest 
thing in packaging: 

The consumer market for easy- 
to-prepare meals is growing with 
the increase in the nation's work- 
ing force. Latest figures show 
there are more than 12,038,000 
employed housewives; 6,959,000 
single men; and 5,078,000 single 
women. These are the too-busy- 
to-cook groups which he believes 
are most interested in how to 
expedite meal preparation. 

It enables the housewife to 
keep stocked»up on a variety of 
meals— fancy and otherwise— 
with only a minimum of storage 
space and shopping required. For 
instance, a full year's supply of 

specialty foods can be stoned in 
the home freezer, packaged in 
these comparatively small, com- 
pact bags. 

Cost savings as well as time 
savings are being served up by 
these bags every day. Up to 50% 
cost savings already have been 
reported from their use. It's no 
longer necessary to purchase and 
prepare all sorts of meal ingre- 
dients because they now can all 
be packaged in a single bag. 
Moreover, no mechanical opening 
devices are needed to open the 
bag since it is slit on the edges 
for easy tear-opening and dis- 

Quality and formulation con- 
trol is assured. Packaging re- 
searchers report that the bagged 
foods contain all of the taste, 
flavor, aroma, vitamins and 
nutrients of the foods — even the 
most highly seasoned and saucy 
foods. Uniform bags arc avail- 
able for exact servings.

The I.F.C. has been supporting 
two Hungarian refugees while 
they have been studying here for 
the past four years, through the 
contributions of all of the mem- 
bers of UMass fraternities. The

and made some comments about 
improvements that should be

it could be an inter-fraternity 
event or one that would involve

of 45 Tudor Rd., Newton, and 
Longmeadow to be a trustee of 
the University of Massachusetts. 
If approved by the Governor's 
Council, she vvill succeed F. Ro- 
land McDermott of Wrentham, 
whose term has expired. 

The governor also named for 
reappointments Dr. Kenneth H. 
Rice, Sr., of South Deerfield as 
associate metiical examiner of the 
western district of Franklin 
County, and Edward T. O'Brien 
of Easthampton to the Board of 
Registration in Embalming and 
Funeral Directing. 

Named for a one-year term on

In other appointments, the

tute for the Blind. 

Sen. Flanders . . . 

(Continued front page 1) 

Now the big question is, with 
this record of our weakening 
what will be the administration 
policy? Mainly our stand will be 
one of non-aggressive neutrality. 
As for the other points, one can 
just guess what the future Presi- 
dent's policy will be. Among the 
policies suggested by Flanders 
was one that is currently in the 
offing in It is being 
considered that the responsibility 
for helf)ing underdeveloped coun- 
tries be given to the U.N. Also, 
as for the military policy, our 
strength .should be u.sed not for 
strength's .sake, itself, but rather 
to buy time for effectiveness in 
other fields. 

Concerning the individual can- 
didates, Flanders .seemed to 
think the forthcoming debate on 
international Lssues should tell a 
great deal. However certain 
events have given hints to the 
stand of the candidates. During 
the U-2 incident, Kennedy sug- 
gested that the United States 
should apologize to the Soviet 
government. Senator Flanders is 
one of many who see no need for 
this action. Lodge, the Rep. Vice- 
Presidential candidate, however, 
faced the Soviet ambassadors 
with pictures of Soviet planes

Senate Elections 



At The State House: 


Many Heroes In 27-12 Win; 
Redmen Victory Streak Now 5 

Treasurer Kennedy's 
Campaign Cost $185 

Boston — State Treasurer John know the principles I stand for 

F. Kennedy, who ran fifth in a 
seven-man field for the Demo- 
cratic gubernatorial nomination 
while spending only $185, may 
return to politics in two years. 

But if the three-term treasurer 
does attempt a comeback, next 
time he'll "accept all the organi- 
zational help and contributions 

Kennedy made this admission 
today as he observed that 
"money and organization are 
very helpful in a campaign," 

"I'm convinced now that I 
would have won quite handily in 
the primary had I accepted the 
organizational offers and the 
many contributions that were of- 
fered," he said, adding somewhat 
ruefully "you see I was trying 
for the ideal but the election re- 
sults showed clearly that it is 
necessary to have an organiza- 

In the event he returns to the 
political wars in two years any 
contributions he accepts would be 
"without strings." He said he 
now believes it is possible for a 
candidate to build up an organi- 
zation and receive contributions 
"without compromising prin- 

"If I should run again I feel 
the people who would support me 
and make campaign donations

McLaughlin Talks 
On UrbanRenewal 
To Pali. Sci. Assn. 

Collegian Staff Reporter 
Edward F. McLaughlin, Jr. 
addressed the Political Science 
Association here Thursday in the 
Council Chambers of the SU. Mc- 
Laughlin is the Democratic can- 
didate for the office of Lt. Gov- 
ernor of the Commonwealth and 
the president of the Boston City 

McLaughlin's speech was con- 
fined to three topics: Urban 
Renewal and Redevelopment ; 
Transportation; and Education. 

He briefly explained Urban 
Renewal as a federal program 
instituted in 1949 to correct the 
problem of blight in our large 
cities. Basically the federal gov- 
ernment agrees to pay two thirds 
of the cost, while the municipali- 
ties pay the remaining one third. 
One provision of the Urban 
Renewal program is that the area 
in question be ruled substandard 
by the city fathers. McLaughlin 
cited Boston's West End project 
in which the area was voted sub- 
standard. The irat6 residents, 
their neighborhood pride aroused, 
threatened to defend their homes 
with loaded weapons. 

McLaughlin stated it was such 
problems as that in Boston, and I 

and realize that I would not do 
anything if elected that would 
compromise these principles," 
Kennedy declared. 

Kennedy rolled up 52,972 votes 
in the primary without making 
a single speech or accepting a 
penny from N\-ell-wishers. He 
sought the Democratic nomina- 
tion for Governor because he is 
barred by the state constitution 
from holding the office after 
serving three consecutive terms. 
Although Kennedy says there 
is a possibility of his return to 
state politics in two years, right 
now his plans are indefinite "and 
probably won't crystalize until 
after the election." 

"I'm a lame duck treasurer," 
he pointed out, "and it's kind of 
lonely these days. No one comes 
in any more. All I can do is hold 
the fort until my successor takes 
over." He added, with obvious 
pride: "There hasn't been any 
conflict of interests during my 
tenure. I haven't feathered my 
nest while in" office. I lived off 
my salary and I'll leave here 
with a clear conscience." 
The Senate ways and means 
committee will report out the 
multi-million dollar capital out- 
lay bill this week— but the 
amount and the bill's fate are 

The House ways and means 
committee studied the Gover- 
nor's recommendations totalling 
158,662,000 and then slashed the 
measure to $23,900,000. The 
House, however, upped the 
amount to $49,346,000 and sent 
it to the Senate which referred 
the measure to its ways and 
means committee. 

Senator William D. Fleming 
(D- Worcester), chairman of the 
committee, is on record that he 
will oppose the entire bill unless 
there is provision for paying off 
the bond issues. His group has 
had several executive sessions 
with state budget officials on the

They, they saw, and when 
Massachusetts conquered, John 
Harvard turned over in hi.s grave. 
Not only the Crimson, but the 
entire football world was shaken 
Saturday when the "fighting 
Redmen" tomahawked Charlie 
Ravenel & Co.. 27-12, before 
10,500 sundrenched fans in Har- 
vard Stadium. 

Harvard's bleary-eyed patrons 
.sat in stunned silence, staring in 
disbelief. The experts had the 
Jawns tabbed a.s the Ivy League 
kings, this was to be their first 
undefeated season in nearly 50 
years, UMass was only to be an- 
other team — another game. Yes, 
the Cambridge boys had great 
expectations — but they were shat- 
tered when the men from 
chusetts arrived on the scene. 
Harvard had been riding on 
Cloud 9 following their opening 
victory over Hoh Cross, but it 
was the fighting Redmen who 
precipitated the cloudburst. 

by W. JOHN LKNNON '61 

In the first half the Crimson 
line collapsed like a hummit con- 
ference. This was the forward 
wall which had held Holy Cross 
to a total of 53 yards rushing, 
but the Redmen turned it into a 
sieve. The L'M forwards con- 
stantly o|)ened holes for their 
hard charging hacks. As the left 
side of the Harvard line was 
particularly vulnerable to the re- 
lentless attack play after play 
was directed toward this weak 

20-0 IN 18 MINUTES 
The visitors spent less than 18 
minutes to run the count to 20-0. 
After Harvard retaliated with 
two scores of their own, both on 
long runs, the Redmen wrapped 
things up when Mike Salem 
plunged through right guard 
from one yard out to climax a 
brilliant team effort. 

The UM defensive alignment

went to the airwavH. Five times 
the QB was dropped behind the 
line, one pas.s was intercepted, 
and the other 5 were ^complete. 
Paul .Majeski was outstanding 
as he blocked a punt leading to 
a touchdown, recovered a fumble 
to set up another .scoring drive, 
and made several tackles. 

Massachusetts' initial drive to 
paydirt consumed 11 plays, and 
was climaxed when .McCormick 
bucked through the center from 
one yard out. John Bambeny'.s 
educated toe zoomed the Redmen 
into a 7-0 advantage. 

Less than four minutes later 
UMass was back knocking on 
the door to paydirt. Following 
.Majeski's block of .Ma(\Intyre's 
punt, the Redmen took three 
plays to go eight yard.*? to the 
goal line. After two short runs, 
McCormick spotted Harry Willi- 
ford in the end zone and connect-

also that many public officials 
know little or nothing about Ur-

the program. Only four cities in 
the state, Boston, Worcester, 
Springfield, and Somerville have 
gone ahead in Urban Renewal. 

Concerning education, Mc- 
Laughlin noted that there was 
nothing more important to him 
than education. He added that 
youth must be well prepared to 
meet the Russian threat. 

With the increase in costs and 
steadily mounting inflation, pri-

Collegian Staff Reporter 

The Young Republicans' club 
on campus, born and baptized on 
September 22, has announced its 
first project, namely, ".securing a 
victory for Saltonstall in Novem- 

The Voung Republicans, brain- 
child of Bob Barney '60 and 
Gerald Ralston '60, was founded 
in order to give a "grassroots 
grasp of good politics, and ac- 
tively enroll University students 
in the political process as carried 
out by the Republican Party." 

The first step towards a "work- 
ing affiliation" with the Repub- 
lican Party was the obtaining of 
a "Saltonstall Headquarters" in 
Northampton, which will be 
manned by campus Young Re- 

Immediate plans, said Secre- 
tary Dick Boardman, will be can- 

vassing, polling of is.sues, fund 
raising, public relations, and a 
'Get out to vote' drive. 

At the second meeting an au- 
dience of 36 heard Gerry Ral- 
ston's introductory exhortation 
and a plea for youth and dynam- 
ism in the Republican Party. 

Stating the aims of the Young 
Republicans, Ralston .said, "our 
aim is to support the regular 
Party organization and it's candi- 
dates," mentioning also the "in- 
valuable experience and the op- 
portunities derived fmm working 
in a campaign." 

A contingent of Young Repub- 
licans was on hand Saturday 
morning to talk with Senator 
Saltonstall after he had break- 
fasted with Bob Barney, chair- 
man of the Young Republicans. 
Plans are now in effect, said

We Really 
Showed Them! 

Oui- victoi-y over Harvard Saturday was 
very sweet indeed, but not just because we 
routed the top contender for the Ivy League 

The Harvard attitude of contempt for 
our Marching Band and Precisionettes as 
well as our football team was all the more 
reason for us to show them where they stood. 

Among the comments made in the Har- 
vai'd Union where the band and Preci- 
sioriettes Iimched, were references to "hay- 
seeds" and "hicks" and some derogatory re- 
mai-ks about the band and drill teams uni- 
foi*ms. P>oth the band and the Precisionettes 
were hissed loudly during their half-time 

As the Boston (rlohc put it, the famous 
Harvai'd Band got no better than a draw 
against the Redmen band, and it was far 
outclassed by our crack Precisionettes. Ac- 
tually, the Harvard Band looked quite ridi- 
culous running around on the field every 
time they changed formations, while the 
UMass band maneuvered into much more 
difficult formations in orderly fashion. 

UMass students are very proud of the 
way we wei*e represented Saturday. The 
football team, band, and Precisionettes clear- 
ly demonstrated their (luality, spirit, and

Part 3: China — The Revolution 

Lack Of Competition 
—Only For A Few 

Tomori'ow, ;?,*? of the candidates running 
l'<n' the StUilent Senate and Student Union 
<; ' . ining Board will be voted into office 
foi- the 1960-61 term. As the final return in 
nomination papers shows, the competition 
has been much higher this year. Some of the 
dormitories have as many as five nominees 
I .inning for one seat in the Senate. In a few 
rases — in four men's dorms and for the 

u-ity representative — however, there are 
tiididates running without opposition. 

In a sense, this lack of competition, this 
sign of indifference on the part of the con- 
stituent body, "has" to be expected. Wheeler, 
the u]>perclassmen's doi-m, has failed in the 
past to pi-oduce several nominees in the race 
for the Senate post. 

Whether up for election for the first time 
or up lor re-election, even the well-qualified 
candidate should have a contender. At least 
such a race with its opposition forces in play 
can give us dramatics. It is the competitive 
spirit that will, in the end, show results. 
There is little room for a lackadaisical at- 
titude in the workings of student govern- 

Although competition has been shown on 
»ne side, we have had a bit of apathy on the 
other. Tx\ss than a day remains for cam- 
paigning by the candidates. Yet— we may 
ask — is there also less than a day remaining 
r)nly to read the clever and not-so-clever 
posters boasting some potential Senator or 
SUG Board member's name? A few of us 
have heard little from the nominees running. 
Xow's the time for us to find out. 

Franklin P. Adams in Diary of Our Own Samuel 
/'rpifs has said: 

"I find that a great part of the information I 
have was acquirfd by looking up something and 
finding s(»m»4hing else on the way." 

—Reprinted from "The Reader's Digest" 


In retrospect, it is not difficult to see the futility of Chiang Kai- 
Shek's defense against tho Communist wave of the forties. One must 
remember that the nationalist government formed in Nanking (1927) 
constituted only the fractional, non-Communist factions of the Kuo- 
mintang. The Communist faction which had been expelled from the 
Kuomintang previous to the formation of the nationalist government 
continued, however, to maintain their power in certain key cities. In 
addition to this, the militarist faction of the Kuomintang maintained 
control in the areas occupied by their armies. Thus, effective and cen- 
tralized governmental control was not to be found and the nationalists 
were forced to utilize any strength that they did have against the 
Communists, who, under Mao Tse Tung, niaintaine<l an effective 
guerilla force and continually fomented rebellion amongst the peas- 

In 1931, Japan, eager to maintain its economic and military dom- 
inance in southern Manchuria, attacked. A puppet government was 
set up in Manchuria and the Japanese, intent upon control of China 
itself, began to expand military operations. As the Japanese began 
to occupy the co.stal cities of China, as well as the lower Yangtze 
Valley, the nationalist government of Kai-Shek was forced to move 
to Chungking. 

While the Japanese were thus expanding and consolidating their 
power, what indeed was Chiang Kai-Shek doing? He, instead of con- 
fronting the Ja|)anese onslaught, continued his fight against the Com- 
munists. This policy, which Kai-Shek followed from 1931 to 1937, 
was, indeed, unpopular with many. Meanwhile, Kai-Shek's incessant 
campaign the Communists bore fruit. The city .strongholds 
of the Communists fell and the Red Army was forced to undertake 
the "long march" to Yenan, which would be (19.3.5) their new capital. 
(Incidentally, the average age of the commissioned officers in the 
Communist army was around eighteen). 

At this time (1935), a policy change occurred in Moscow. This 
new "line" called for a united front against the militaristic and fas- 
cist powers of Japan and Germany. Kai-Shek, under various military 
and economic pressures, dtn-ided in favor of this united front, and, 
in 1937, the Kuomintang and the Communists established a working 
agreement to better facilitate expulsion of the Japanese forces. 

As the war wore on, the true character of the Chungking (na- 
tionalist) government unfoi-tunateiy was bared. To add to the increas- 
ing inflation, corruption blos.somed under the watchful eyes and help- 
ing hands of Kai-Shek. If there were ever a time when an honest and 
sincere leader was needed, here it wa.s. Chiang Kai-Shek did not then, 
nor does he to this very day, face up to the challenge of the times. 

The Communists, under Mao Tse Tung, now con.solidated their 
strength and, upon a wave of dissatisfaction and misery, steadily 
engulfed the nationalist forces. 

When the war ended, President Truman .sent General George C. 
Marshall to China "to be of assistance in hastening China's recovery," 
or, in short, to effect a reconciliation between nationalist and Com- 
munist forces. In view of Marshall's subsequent statements and 
United State's actions concerning the Communists, however, one is 
inclined to question the validity of Marshall as a politically detached, 
and thoroughly objective reconciliator. Indeed, during critical 
months of 1947, the United States supplied military equipment and 
officers to the nationalists. Although this can be justified by the sup- 
position that the post-war "line" of the United States would be ac- 
tive opposition against the Communist wave, the intervention was 
tainted in that it was on behalf of a man who, by Western .standards, 
pensonifies the corrupt and despot. (Somehow, the State 
Department always seems to encounter this difficulty— i e. Franco 
Rhee, etc.) 

When I began the study of this revolution, I was constantly 
amazed at the rapidity of the Communist military advances from 
1947-1949. Indeed, in 1949 the whole of continental China had fallen 
to the Communists. Why was this .so? This, I believe, can be an- 
swered by a general statement: 

The yoke of despotism and hunger cannot long endure. 
Each alone, . . . yes. Together, ... not long 


A Missed-Up 
Bogged-Down Tank 

September 28, 1960 
To the Editor: 

Can it be that our beloved Collegian has failed 
us? After two semesters of happily thumbing 
through your interesting, intellectual, humorous, 
and informative tri-weekly newspaper, we return to 
campus this year and find you are no longer as in- 

We cite two examples of potentially informa 
tive news items which have thus far been over- 

1. From the R.O.T.C. Department— A $9000.00 
tank bogged down last Monday morning while on 
training maneuvers. Consult any advanced armor 
cadet for full details. 

2. Attention, superintendent of maintenance: The 
Campus Pond has disappeared. Campus police are 
now seeking its whereabouts. 

Why have these articles not been presented? 
Certainly they are of interest to a majority of stu- 
dents. The two lower classes of male undergrad- 
uates are forced to possess interests in R.O.T.C, 
and all University students are affected by the 
atmosphere of now dry campus pond. There 
must be a reason. 

Are you so understaffed that it is no longer pos- 
sible to print all the news of our campus commu- 
nity? Your readers desire an answer!

Buggy Rug 
On Exhibition 

To the Editor: 

People have been constantly asking admission to 
the controversial Room 132 in Van Meter. When we, 
the pre.sent occupants of Room 132, first saw the 
intricate mass of cobwebs on the wall adjacent to 
Room 134, our counselor, the ROTC major, told us 
that it was a new device for insulating sound, uni- 
que to Room 132. The mass of threads gave Jim the false impression of a Gorden Linen 
blanket, and, although he was wrong, we now use 
it for a rug. 

The ROTC major, also, was wrong about the 
web's insulating properties. At night we can still 
hear the voices of Elliot Gventer and Alan Lebo- 
vidge, the pre.sent occupants of 134, who have gained 
vast repute as the loudest cat-callers in Van Meter. 
(Drop dead, Greenough!) 

We are proud to announce that because the 
zoology departfnent insists that our rug be put on 
exhibition, our room it available to spectators for 
25(* during the Thanksgiving vacation. Girls are 
welcome free after midnight any night of the week. 

Robert W. Lees, one of 132's present occupants, 
has removed the "s" from his last name so as not 
to be associated with the entomologist from last 
.year, Ronald Lees. 

Sincerely yours, 
Robert W. Ue

Students, Faculty Invited 
To Mantovani Reception 

Following the concert (to- 
night) at eight in the Cage, stu- 
dents and faculty members of the 
University will have an oppor- 
tunity to meet the well-known 
Mantovani and his 45-member 
orchestra at an informal recep- 
tion in the Commonwealth Room 
of the Student Union at ten 

The reception marks the first 
of what the Concert Association 
hopes will become a regular fea- 
ture following every concert. As 
an experiment, a reception was 
held last year after the perfor- 
mance of the Robert Wagner 
Chorale and found to be success- 
ful. At such a reception, it is pos- 
sible to meet the artists in an 
informal manner and to catch a 
glimpse of their off-the-stage 

Tonight will not be the first 
time Mantovani has appeared at 
the University, for he appeared 
here in the second concert of his 
first U. S. tour. So popular has 
this musician become, that he is 
now touring the country for the 
fourth time. The program this 
I evening promises to be one of 

the familiar, entertaining music 
we have all come to associate 
with Mantovani. 

In addition to his musical ac- 
complishments, Mantovani is re- 
puted to have quite an engaging 
personality. The reception should, 
therefore, prove to be highly en- 
joyable to those attending. 

University women, including 
freshmen, are reminded that they 
will have one hour following the 
concert in which to attend the 
reception before they must re- 
turn to their dormitories. 

Tickets for this evening's pro- 
gram will be available at the 
door prior to the concert at one 
dollar each. Series tickets for 
all six concerts may be purchased 
at the Student Activities Office 
of the Union for four dollars. 
Students will be admitted to all 
concerts by showing their I. D. 



OR. FROOD'8 THOUGHT FOR THB DAY: 'TlS better tO kuVC loVcd 

and lost than to have spent the whole weekend studying. 

Dear Dr. Frood: My roommate is a good guy, but 
there's one thing about him I can't stand. He 
wears button-down collars but never buttons the 
little lapel buttons. Why is this? 

Clothes Conscious 

DEAR CLOTHES: Don't let this worry you. It's just 
that his thumbs are too big. 

Dear Dr. Frood: The other day my roommate and I 
had an argument about the difference between tradi- 
tional art and modern art. What, in your opinion, is 
the basic difference between these two forms? 

Art Major 

DEAR ART: The examples above should settle your 
argument. The portrait at left is traditional. The artist 
has drawn Lincoln as he actually appeared. The por- 
trait at right is modern. As you can see, the modern 
artist has drawn Lincoln's great-great-grandson. 

State House . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

Meanwhile, the House today took 
up a resolve, based on a recom- 
mendation of the Governor, for 
a study of the public works de- 
partment by a special legislative 
commission. At the same time a 
special Senate committee was 
holding a public hearing on alle- 
gations of irregularities in the 
department's highway division 
made by State Auditor Thomas 
J. Buckley. 

The hearing is expected to 
finish today and the committee, 
headed by Senator Maurice A. 
Donahue (D-Boston), majority 
leader, will immediately begin 
drafting its report for presenta- 
tion to the Senate. 

Another special Senate com- 
mittee, chaired by Senate Presi- 
dent John E. Powers (D-Bos- 
ton), has completed its work of 
studying charges of irregulari- 
ties in the Metropolitan District 
Commission also made by Audi- 
tor Buckley. 

Dear Dr. Frood: Once and for all — is It right or 
wrong for a man to marry a girl for her money? 


DEAR RIGHTEOUS: Nowadays this isn't simply a 
matter of right or wrong. There are the tax angles 
to consider. 

Dear Dr. Frood: I don't understand my boy friend. 
When we are all alone and the moon is full, he 
tells me he worships me. But during the day, he 
crosses the street when he sees me coming. What 
is wrong? 


DEAR LOVELORN: Did it eve/ occur to you that he 
may be a werewolf? 

Dear Dr. Frood: My favorite brand is Lucky Strike. But 
unfortunately I am left-handed. Why doesn't Lucky 
Strike come out with cigarettes for left-handed people? 


DEAR LEFTY: Left-handed Luckies 
are available. Simply ask for 
"Left-handed Luckies." They 
come in a white pack with a red 
bull's-eye. The only difference be- 
tween these and ordinary Luckies 
is that you must always smoke 
them while facing a mirror. 

"LUCKIES ARE BETTER THAN MONEY," says Dr. Frood (who gets paid In Luckies). 
It's a fact that college students smoke more Luckies than any other regular 
This cigarette is all cigarette-the cigarette that still tastes great. Try a pack 
today- it's the only thing you and Dr. Frood will ever have in common. 

CHANGE TO LUCKIES and get some taste for a change!

more millions here at UMass. 
McLauffhin said that the money 
would be eventually earmarked 
for such as a new physical educa- 
tion plant. He also stated he be- 
lieved the salaries of professors 
and teachers would be raised. "If 
we all face the issues frankly and 
clearly, all will see their respon- 
sibilitie.s. And the University of 
Massachusetts and the state 
teachers colleges will have all 
that is necessary." 

On transportation, McLaughlin 
stated that Boston is the hub of 
the Commonwealth. The life- 
blood of the state is pumped 
through Boston," said McLaugh- 
lin. "As Boston goes, so goes the 
Commonwealth. We can't allow 
Boston to strangle and die." 

He said that the MTA covers 
fourteen towns. There is also the 
Eastern Mass., Worcester St. 
Railway, and several other short- 
er lines in the Greater Boston 
area. None operate on an inte- 
grated basis. There is little or no 
co-operation, and the sen'ice is 
not as good as could be for the 

McLaughlin favors state or 
quasistate control to provide de- 
cent accommodations, and low 
rates, under state subsidy. Mc- 
Laughlin states that if a suitable 
transporation system is not work- 
ed out, urban areas will have 
more difficulty, with a resulting 
effect on taxes and business. "We 
(the politicians and businessman) 
must work together as a team 
and get together to solve a com- 
mon problem."

Under-rated UMass Eleven

true and the scoreboard sparkled, 

Before three minutes had 
elapsed in the second quarter, the 
"dark horse" of the New England 
gridiron marched 80 yards in 
eight plays for still another TD. 
McCormick connected with Wil- 
liford for 42 yards, Conway, on 
an option, slanted oflF right tackle 
for 18, and on the next play 
completed a 15 yard pass-run 

play to Salem which carried to 
the Crimson 1. Dick Hoss then 
went over to make it 20-0. Bam- 
berry, for the first time this sea- 
son missed the one pointer. 


One minute later Harvard 
broke their scoreless streak. 
Sophomore half back Hobie Arm- 
strong ripped through right 
tackle and galloped 75 yards 
down the right sidelines. Terry 
Bartolet's attempted pass conver- 

sion failed. The count: 
and Harvard 6. 

UM 20 

The long scoring play which 
has resulted in all the opponents 
TD's this season occurred again 
shortly after the second half 
opened. Terry Lenzer recovered a 
fumble on the UM 21. Then on 
the next play Bruce Maclntyre 
barged his way through left 
gfuard and cut to his left and 
went all the way. Again the con- 
version failed, and the Redmen 
led 20-12. 


UMass added an insurance tal- 
ly midway through the third 
quarter. After Majeski recovered 
a Bartolet fumble on the oppon- 
ents 9, UM drove to the 2, where 
on fourth down McCormick's 
pass to Salem was incomplete. In- 
terference was called, however, 
and the Redmen had the ball on 
the 1. From there Salem plunged

Now, with visions of victory

They had seen their gridiron em-

Father Wallace earned his bach- 
elor of science degree in electri- 
cal engineering from Manh(fttan 
College in 1940. With the advent 
of World War II he left the re-

IFC & PanHel Sell 
Balloons For Books 
At Homecoming 

On Homecoming Weekend, the 
Interfraternity Council and the 
Panhellenic Council will establish 
a campus tradition. The members 
of the Councils will sell colored 
balloons along the parade route, 
at the rally, and at the game dec- 
orated with an Indian head in- 
scribed "University of Massachu- 

The balloons will be sold as a 
philanthropic project to raise 
money for purchasing books for 
Goodell Library, In particular, 
they will buy duplicate copies of 
reserve and reference books al- 
leady owned by the library, but 
stocked in insufficient numbers 
for the large student body re- 
quired to use them. 

The Councils urge students, 
alumni, and townspeople to par- 
ticipate in this effort. Purchases 
of balloons will contribute to the 
ever-expanding effectiv^iess 'of 
the University library and at the 
same time will add color to the 
Homecoming Weekend activities.

Wm. Wheeler House 
Dedicated Yesterday 

Miss Kliuabeth K. Wheeler, John 

Collegian St 

Frank Prentice Rand, Profes- 
^:or of Knglish, Kmeritus, was 
the speaker at dedication cere- 
monies of William Wheeler 
House yesterday attended by 70 
people. The program o|)ened at 
'i p.m. with a geneial welcome 
extended by Joseph Del Vecchio 
T»4, representative of Lambert 
Decker '62, president of the 
house. Del Vecchio then intro- 
duced Professor Rand. 

Speaks on William Wheeler 

Rand outlined Wheeler's life 
from 1867 when he entered the 
Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege until his death in 1982. 
"William Wheeler did more than 
study during his four years in 
college. He edited a department 
of an Amherst newspaper on col- 
lege news and played left field on 
the Mass Aggie baseball team." 
Graduating second in his class in 
1871, Wheeler, in the class ode. 
commented; "With a sea of life 
before us, as its portals open 
wide, our beacon casts its light 
upon the sky." Evidently, he did 
cast his light, because in 1917 
he was named as a delegate to 
the Constitutional Convention 
and cited as "Concord's leading 
citizen." His service to the col- 
lege included 46 years as a trus- 
tee. Upon his retirement in 1929 
as Chairman of the Board of 

Gillespie, Prof. Frank P. Rand. 
aff Reporter 

Trustees, he was given an Honor- 
ary Doctor of Laws Degree. It 
was on this occasion that presi- 
dent Roscoe W. Thatcher said, 
"No one has ever given a.^ long 
or rendered more eflFective service 
to the college, as a loyal alumnus

Christian Association Plans 
Play And Panel Discussion 

The first program of the 
Christian Association, entitled 
"The Age of Salesmanship" be- 
gins at 7:00 Tuesday evening on 
the .stage of Bartlett Hall. 

The play, e. e. cummings' San- 
ta Claus. begins with a conversa- 
tion between Death and Santa 
Claus. The conversation is packed 
with comedy and irony. Santa 
Claus finds himself in a predica- 
ment: he wishes to give to the 
man of the 20th century but 
there is no one capable of receiv- 
ing. Death eagerly analyzes his 
dilemma. Evolving from this con- 
versation is a picture of our 
shriveled view of knowledge, our 
loss of understanding and our in- 
ability to love. 

Following the reading will be 
a panel discussion concerning the 
themes of the play and their ap- 
plication to our lives in this uni- 
versity. The panel will comprise 
Louis Greenbaum, Rev. Donald 

Bossart, Gail Osbaldeston and 
David narrower. 

The use of e. e. cummings' 
play in a Christian Association 
meeting may be new to some 
and surprising to others. The 
reason for this venture is this: 
too many of our 'religious' plays 
are so draped in outdated garb 
that they no longer communicate 
to the conditions of our time. For 
a play to be religious, or Chris- 
tian, it is not necessary to romp 
around in beards, halos, and bath- 
robes. A play becomes religious 
when it deals with the funda- 
mental problems of our existence. 
This play of Mr. cummings' con- 
cerns itself with such problems. 
So it is that the Christian Asso- 
ciation concerns itself with this 
type of drama. 

Readers of Santa Claus will be 
Ben Benoit, Nancy King, George 
Jones and Steve Allen. 

Students and faculty arc cor- 
dially invited to attend.

'State Can Be Proud 
Of UMass'— Saulnier 

by JACK BAPTISTA '61. Colleffian Special Reporter 

"As the University of Massachusetts continues its present rapid 
piitjfrcss in all phases «>f its educational facilities, the parents (»f Mas- 
sachusetts can look with ever-increasing pride and confidence to the 
acarlemic uppoi tunilies opening up to their sons and daughters" stated 
Representative Joseph Saulnier (R-New Bedford). He spoke as one 
who has personally surveyed the situation, for his daughter is a 
member of the junior class at UMass. He feels that his daughter is 
getting "an education comparable to that offered by any of the better 
state universities in the country". 

Commenting on the capacity of the University to fulfill the needs 
of the rapidly increasing number of new students each year, Saulnier 
declared, "The term 'diploma mill' is unfortunate. 1 have heard it use<l 
loosely in connection with other universities, but I do not feel there 
is any justification for it anywhere. The educatois with whom I have 
been in contact, namely high school principals and teachers, all hoM 
the University in high esteem." 

"Record student enrollments with the resulting probk'nis of class 
sizes, faculty, housing, facilities, etc. are national in scope. They are 
not particular to UMass. I favor constructive legislative action de- 
signed to solve these problems." 

With regard to the growing number of faculty resignations of 
late, Representative Saulnier stated, "The circumstances of President 
Mather's resignation and the reports on faculty turnover, have left, 
on the whole, a negative public impression. A need is indicated for 
definite improvement in this area". 

Repre.sentative Saulnier .said he foresees a general expansion of 
all divisions of the University in the future. He hopes it continues to 
maintain the Agricultural School. "The University Cranberry Ex- 
perimental Station, for example, affects a .substantial industry jm 
southeastern Massachusetts", he added. 

Saulnier concluded, "My personal impression of UMass, it.^ stu- 
dents, faculty, and educational standards is very favorable. I believe 
the University's efforts to fill the urgent educational needs of the 
young people of the Commonwealth are a high point. The major short 
comings, in my opinion, stem from a failure to stimulate greater 
public interest and support for these efforts".

joint rally of the .Massachusetts 
Federation of collegiate Young 
Democrats to be held at the Uni- 
versity Sunday. O'Connor, the 
Democratic nominee for the 
senate seat now held by Leverett

September 13 with his stunning 
primary win over G o v e r n o i 
Foster Furcolo. 

The rally spon.sored by the 
University Young Democrats will 
begin at 6:00 P.M. on the Stu-

it will be held in the ballroom. 

Jo.seph D. Ward, Democratic 
candidate for Governor is also 
expected to make an appearance. 
Other state and local candidates 
are among the invited guests. 

The host organization which 
was reorganized last year after 
a period of dormancy has been 
gaining an increasingly active 
role in the year's campaign. 
Along with the rally the YD's 
have been working on "Dollars 
for Democrats" in conjunction 
with the Ajiiherst Democratic 
Town Committee and are initiat- 
ing a membership drive which 
will be kicked off this Sunday. 

Peter Watson, president of the 
Club, stated, "It certainly isn't 
necessary to be an active and ar- 
dent Democrat to attend the rally 
—although we definitely expect 
to see these people there. Any- 
one interested in politics who 
would like to see a political rally 
in action is more than welcome. 
And it's not limited to students 
by any means".

Prof. Morgan To Give 
Lecture On Athens 

I by ROGEP* CRUFF '64. 

The first of three English De- 
partment lectures scheduled for 
the fall semester will be held 
Thursday evening at 8:00 in Bow- 
ker Auditorium, Stockbridge Hall. 
The lecture, which was originally 
to be held in Bartlett Auditorium, 
was changed to the larger Bow- 
ker Auditorium to accommodate 
the expected large audience. 

Charles H. Morgan, professor 
of fine arts at Amherst College, 
will pre.sent an illustrated lecture 
on Athens. His slides will include 
pictures of the excavations, build- 
ings, temples and theaters of the 
ancient center of Greek learning. 

Profes.sor Morgan, a native of 
Worcester, attended Hotchkiss 
School and received his B.A., 
M.A., and Ph.D. from Harvard. 
He taught at Harvard and Bryn 
Mawr after graduation and be- 
gan teaching at Amherst College 
in 1930. He received an honorary 
M.A. from Amherst College in 
1938 and a L.H.D. from the Uni- 
versity of Vermont in 1960. 
Outstanding War Record 
During the war, Professor 
Morgan served with combat in- 
telligence in the Air Force in . 

Collefjuni Staff Reporter

ly acclaimed by critics. 

The lecture is open to all and 
students are cordially invited. 
The next lecture in the series will 
be held on November 8, 1960. 


A Word To The Wise 

Every so often, someone realizes that there is a gross 
lack of school spirit on this campus; he complains to all 
those who will listen, perhaps writes a letter to the editor 
of the Colleyian, and eventually forgets about the situation 
— until someone else decides to drag it up again. 

And every so often, the administration revokes the 
right of the students to observe another of the diminishing 
collection of school traditions. The students grumble and 
complain ; a flood of letters pour into the editor's desk ; but 
eventually the students resign themselves to the new re- 
striction and the tradition is soon forgotten by all but rem- 
iniscent seniors who relate, in nostalgic tones, with eyes 
agleam, the wonders and delights of the "good old days." 

A university possesses potential energy. It can be 
transformed into kinetic energy: school spirit. But such a 
transformation can be achieved by only one means: tradi- 

Why cannot a group of young adults, in the course of 
a year of serious study, enjoy the harmless fun of one 
Spring Day of psychological release? 

Is it criminal for a dreamy-eyed co-ed to be serenaded 
when she becomes pinned? (For some alumnae, this re- 
mains their prime memory of a four-year college educa- 

The administration sanctions a series of sports from 
basketball and swimming to football and gymnastics. Why 
then is it delinquent to participate in the friendly rivalry 
of a tug-of-war? ( Is the administration merely concerned 
with saving the campus pond from pollution? If people are 
inclined to go for a dunk therein, they will do so regard- 
less, as we observed last winter . . .) 

Each fall we hold huge pep rallies. A cheerleader leaps 
up and roars, "WHO'S gonna win?" And the students mur- 
mur, "What difference does it make?" 

And our administration still wonders why we lack 
school spirit . . .

To the Editor: 

While reading through my favorite college news- 
paper I came across a letter which unjustly accused 
two friends of mine of emitting loud cat calls from 
their room. 

I interviewed the accused and they subsequently 
denied the validity of the title of "loudest cat-callers 
in Van Meter", bestowed upon them by "BG" 
Gamerman, Gorden Linen's obtuse diversion. 

In fact, if one listens not too carefully he can 
hear weird noises emanating from room 131 which 
puts the unjustly accused cat-callers to shame. 

There exists in room 131 a half-deaf proponent 
of Hi-Fi who delights in torturing his neighbors 
with 100 decibels of earthquakes, cannons and the 
recorded clatter created by the M. T. A. at Park 
Street. When you are awakened at 2 a.m. to the 
strains of "The Stars and Stripes Forever," played 
on diatonically tuned oil drums by Lord Aorta and 
his Vena Cavas, you have the desire to rush into 
the fellow's room and totally demolish his setup, but 
you know that he will just rebuild it. 

If anyone has a solution to this vexing problem 
will he please send it in to the Collegian. 

Sincerely yours, 
Marvin Z. Charney 
Van Meter Rm. 301

Collegian Arts Critic 

Mantovani tends to be repetitious and shallow 
to the intelligent listener, but Monday's concert 
revealed great versatility. The program was or- 
ganized skillfully enough to keep the audience from 
mental reverie. Mood music which is so commonly 
associated with Mantovani was amply represented 
in such choices as Some Enchanted Evening and 
Autumn Leaves; while his best entertainment and 
talent was displayed in the other selections such as 
PerciLssion on Parable, Scottish Rhapsody and Tania, 
his original composition. 


To the Editor: 

Mike Palter has his labels somewhat reversed in 
describing the revolution in China. He states: 

"The Communists under Mao Tse Tung now con- 
solidated their strength and upon a wave of dis- 
satisfaction and misery steadily engulfed the na- 
tionalist forces. 

When the war ended . . ." 

Obviously his "now" is during the war against 
the Japanese. It is historical fact that the com- 
munists did just that. Any military assistance from 
the Allied x'orces that they could get their hands on 
was turned on their own people, who were, in fact, 
suffering war, invasion, and an inflation which had 
originated in US silver policy. 

Earlier in his article Mr. Palter states "Chang 
Kai-Chek instead of confronting the Japanese on- 
slaught, continued his fight against the Communists. 
This was . . . 1931-1937." 

Note the timing: 1931-37 was before WW IL 
Chang Kai-Chek who because of his leadership 
against the Japanese, became and remained the re- 
vered leader of non-communist China, had also to 
contend against communist harassment and guerrilla 

It was the communists, Mike, who did not truly 
fight the Japanese in WW II. "Moscow policy" al- 
ways dictates communist attempts to seize control 
of a people weakened by defense against exterior 
forces or by internal revolution. Here they were 

Also Mike it is conservatively estimated that the 
Communists have killed some 20 million people in 
consolidating their revolution, — not perhaps a great 
percentage of the Chinese population, but still one 
hell of a lot of people. 

Despotism? You better believe! But not Chang's.

Fellowship Nominations 

Most of us are aware of the nation-wide shortage of 
qualified college teachers which has been threatening the 
quality of American education. This shortage is due to the 
phenomenal increase in the number of men and women at- 
tending college, an increase which has created a need for 
at least 30,000 new college teachers per year for the next 
ten years. Immediately after the often considerable expense 
of a four year college education, many students are unwill- 
ing to or cannot enter graduate schools. Very many, there- 
fore, do not consider careers which require graduate work, 
such as careers in college teaching which are essential for 
our country's universities and colleges. In consideration of 
these facts various private foundations have created sub- 
stantial fellowships for college seniors. The Woodrow Wil- 
son National Fellowship Foundation is one of these organ- 

The Foundation offers $1,500 fellowships for first 
year graduate work leading to a career in college teaching. 
Outstanding college seniors and graduates who have not yet 
entered a liberal arts graduate school are eligible provided 
that they are citizens of the United States or of Canada 
Through a careful process of selection, including a personal 
interview, 1000 students are finally chosen from the 
nominees. These are fully supported through their first 
year of graduate study. 

The foundation primarily selects those interested in 
teaching careers in the humanities and social sciences. In 
certain cases, however, when a dear preference for college 
teaching is shown, candidates from the natural sciences 
will be considered. (Those students majoring in the sciences 
are urged to apply for a National Science Foundation Fel- 
lowship if they are interested.) 

Nominations must be in the hands of a regional chair- 
man no later than OCTOBER 31. The candidate must then 
file an information form by November 30. 

Those wanting further details about these fellowships 
may contact Professor T. O. Wilkinson, in the Department 
of Sociology, Machmer Hall (Ext. 318). 

We hope that our faculty will not fail to nominate all 
students qualified for these awards.

The most interesting aspect of the concert was 
the sound and versatility which was produced by a 
tiny nucleus of woodwinds, brass, percussion, and 
accordion in a predominantly string orchestra. There 
were many subtleties and colorations produced by 
the use of the instruments; the Ca-nary was one 
such selection using two violins to reproduce a 
canary sound with the rest of the orchestra center- 
ing around them, while Mantovani displayed his 
humorous inclinations in conducting. One soloist, 
George Swift, was outstanding as artist and com- 
poser, playing Elfriede which won loud audience ac- 

The concert was thoroughly enjoyable, and from 
the standing ovation which Mantovani received, 
this reviewer concludes the audience was impressed. 
The cage was filled to capacity with people over- 
flowing into the aisles. One of the unfortunatie cir- 
cumstances was that late comers disturbed the con- 
cert and the conductor. At one point he said, "Where 
are they coming from?" This lateness may have 
resulted from the audience conditioning to 8:15 
rather than 8:00 for commencing performances. 

The most annoying condition was caused by the 
lighting. Setting a' mood is a part of music listen- 
ing not to be denied especially to Mantovani; but 
the glaring gym lights were a constant reminder of 
the beautiful concert hall in which we were as- 

The concert was a success, if not intellectually 
at least emotionally; and we were fortunate to hear 
a versatile performance, professionally executed by 
an international orchestra. 

HAFtRY GOLDEN in For 2<^ Plain 

Think only in terms of the magnitude of the uni- 
verse, and only then will you have the proper per- 
spective. We work hard, we think hard, and we worry 
hard— all "for the children." And one day the son 
will be sitting in the bosom of his own family, and 
he will say, "My father was rather a tall man." And 
if you are floating somewhere in the ether you will 
say, "Is that all I get out of it? Is that all I get 
for the times I got up in the middle of the night to 
get a doctor when he was sick?" 

Of counse that is all you get out of it. And this 
is good. Reverence for the past is important, of 
course, but the past must not lay too heavy a hand 
upon the present and the future. It is good to work 
hard, think hard and worry hard — for the children, 
for ourselves; and if years later, all you get out of it 
is, "My mother was a good cook, too," just figure 
it as a bonus. Let us not worry about our obituaries. 
Let us only hope and pray that our children sur-

(Author of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf* "The Many 
Loves of Dobie GiUis", etc.) 


Once upon a time at the University of Virginia there was a 
coed named, oddly enough, Virginia University who was hand- 
some and kindly and intelligent and ingeniously constructed 
and majoring in psychology. Virginia went steady with a young 
man on campus named, oddly enough, Oddly Enough who was 
supple and fair and lithe and animated and majoring in phys ed. 
Virginia and Oddly enjoyed a romance that was as idyllic as 
a summer day, as placid as a millpond. Never did they fight- 
never, never, never! -because Virginia, who was majoring in 
psychology, did not believe in fighting. "Fighting," she often 
said, "settles nothing. The scientific way is to look calmly for 
the cause of the friction." 

So whenever she and Oddly were on the verge of a quarrel, 
she used to whip out a series of ink blot tests and they would 
discover the true underiying cause of their dispute and deal 
with it in an enlightened, dispassionate manner. Then, the 
irritant removed, their romance would resume its tranquil, 
serene, unrufl3ed course.

After six months of this sedate liaison. Oddly was so bored 
he could spit. He loved Virginia well enough, but he also be- 
lieved that people in love ought to fight now and then. "It 
opens the pores," he said. "And besides, it's so much fun mak- 
ing up afterwards." 

But Virginia would not be provoked into a quarrel. One night 
Oddly tried very hard. "Hey," he said to her, "your nose looka 
like a banana, and your ears look like radar antenna, and your 
face looks like a pan of worms." 

"My goodness, we're hostile tonight !" said Virginia cheerfully 
and whipped 120 Rorschach cards out of her reticule. "Come," 
she said, "let \\& examine your psychic apparatus." 

Oddly tried again. "You're fat and dumb and disagreeable," 
he said, "and you'll be bald before you're thirty." 

"Hmra," said Virginia thoughtfully and lit a cigarette. "Thia 
sounds like an anxiety neurosis with totemism, anagogic trauma, 
and a belt in the back." 

"I hate you," said Oddly. "I hate your looks and your clothes 
and your toenails and your relatives and the cigarettes you 

"Now, hold on, buster!" cried Virginia, her eyes crackling, 
her color mounting, her nostrils aflame. "Just keep a civil 
tongue in your stupid head when you talk about Mariborol 
Nobody's knocking that filter, that flavor, that pack or flip-top 
box while there's breath in my body! It's a full-flavored smoke, 
it's a doozy, it's a dilly, it's a gas -and anybody who says a 
word against it gets ihisP 

By "this" Virginia meant a series of combinations to the 
head and liver, which she now delivered to Oddly and turned 
on her heel and stormed away. 

Oddly brought her down with a flying tackle. "I love you 
with all my heart," he said. 

"And Marlboro?" said she. 

"And Marlboro even more," said he. 

And they kissed and plaited love knots in one another's hair 
ftnd were married at Whitsuntide and smoked happily ever after.

Mr. Arthur E. Niedeck, advisor 
to the Roister Doisters, an- 
nounced today the final results 
of last week's tryouts for the 
Roister Bolsters' fall production. 
Look Homeward, Angel, the 
great Broadway dramatic success 
by Ketti Frings based on Thomas

novel, which is to be presented in 
Bowker Auditorium at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts on No- 
vember 17-19. 

The cast includes: Miles Thom-

boarding house and only friend 
of Ben; Honour-Marie Campbell 
as Helen Gant Barton, sister of 
Eugene; Joseph Kielec as Hugh 
Barton, Helen's husband; Jayne 
Hayden as Eliza Gant, mother of 
the household and manager of the 
boarding house; Philip Fisher as 
Eugene Gant, the counter-part of 
Thomas Wolfe as he saw himself 
at the age of seventeen; Mary 
Daley as Mrs. Clatt, Janet Bar- 
dazzi as Florry Mangle, Ivan 
Terzieff as Mr. Farrel, and 
Dorothea Brown as Miss Brown, 

all boarders at the rooming 
house; Janice Dovner as Laura

ly fell in love with; Paul Cwiklik 
as W. 0. Gant, the misunderstood 
father of the family; Francis 
Broadhurst as Dr. Maguire, the 
family physician; Sandra Segel, 
the town Madame and manager 
of the town's questionable busi- 
ness; David Manley as Luke

the University of Massachusetts 
and advisor to the Roister Dois- 
ters. Assistant to the Director is

cuted by Robert Smith. 

The Roister Doisters wish to 
express their appreciation to all 
those who came to the tryouts. 
This year's tryouts set a new 
record in the history of the or- 
ganization for number of people 
attending, surpassing last year's 
record success, Auntie Mame. 

Leach Songbirds Capture 
Prize In Dormitory Sing 

Eldon Caves 
Explored By 
UMass Club 

Members of the Outing Club, 
including four girls, braved the 
icy waters of Massachusetts' 
largest cave, Eldon French in 
West Stockbridge on Sunday, 
October 2. 

It was the first time most of 
the group had ever been spelunk- 
ing. As they crawled inside the 
cave, since most of the travelling 
had to be done on hands and 
knees, they found themselves in 
an icy underground stream. They 
proceeded through a series of 
small waterfalls. It was a tight 
squeeze for some to traverse the 
narrower places. 

Upon leaving the cave, one 
member was seen to bow down on 
his knees and promise to go to 
church every Sunday and say his 
daily prayers. 

Last Tuesday night, the gym 
of the Woman's Physical Educa- 
tion Building resounded with 
song as over six hundred girls 
participated in the annual Inter- 
Dorm Sing. The climax of the 
evening came as the judges an- 
nounced that Leach House had 
won the coveted plaque. Leach, 
under its director, Linda Bum- 
ham '63, had sung "Sons of the 
Valley" as their required UMass. 
song and "The Sloop John B", 
recently made famous by the 
Kingston Trio. In character for 
their song, the girls from Leach 
wore dungarees, white blouses, 
and colorful neck scarves. 

The program opened with Carol 
Jones '61, Chairman of Woman's 
Affairs, introducing the distin- 
guished guests. Among those 
present were President John W. 
Lederle; Miss Helen Curtis, Dean 
of Women; Miss Ruth Totman, 
Director of Physical Education 
for Women; Heads of Residence 
of the women's dormitories; and 
the judges: Mrs. Doric Alviani, 
wife of the Head of the Music 
Department and Mrs. Elisabeth 
Birchard of Newcastle Penn., a 

guest of Miss Totman. Competi- 
tion then got underway as Miss 
Jones turned the program over 
to Miss Janice Dimock '62, Mis- 
tress of Ceremony. 

Each dorm was led in one of 
four University songs, chosen 
from a hat, and one of their own 
selection by a conductor from the 
dorm. The conductors were: Ar- 
nold-Jane Crasco '63; Crabtree- 
Chariotte Kimball '62; Dwight- 
Elaine Carlson '63; Hamlin-Carol 
Jones '61; Johnson-Ann Shutty 
'61; Knowlton-Gail Osbaldeston 
'61; Leach-Linda Bumham '63; 
Lewis-Judy St. Jean '61; Mary 
Lyon-D o 1 1 i e Lowe '63 and 
Thatcher-Paula Turco '63. After 
all the dorms had performed, 
Ann Shutty led the group in 
song while waiting for the 
judges' decision. 

Mrs. Alviani later commented 
that 50% of the judg^ing was 
based on the percentage of fresh- 
men present as compared to the 
number of freshmen in the dorm, 
25% on spirit and originality, 
and 25% on musical quality. She 
also said that it was very enjoy- 
able and wished that she could 
give them all first place.

The National Defense Educa- 
tion Act enacted by Congress in 
1958 placed American education 
in a state of emergency. The 
foreign languages, math, and the 
sciences, as they were being 
taught, were leaving gaps in the 
educational system. To remedy 
this the NDEA was passed. As 
revealed by Stowell C. Coding, 
Head of the Department of For- 
eign Languages, it did a great 
deal in foreign languages. Money 
was appropriated to set up a 
standards committee for the pur- 
pose of testing the competency of 
in-service foreign language teach- 
ers, new foreign language labs, 
newer text books, and to pay 
teachers to attend the summer 
Institutes or one of four year- 
long Institutes. 

One of these year-long Insti- 

tutes is the French Institute at 
UMass. It is like the summer In- 
stitutes. By upgrading speaking, 
using latest laboratory techni- 
ques and by granting fellowships, 
the French Institute along with 
the other foreign language in- 
stitutes seeks to identify out- 
standing teachers who are lead- 
ers in their profession. Coding 
also revealed that the Institute 
at UMass has had 18 teacher- 
students from all over the US. 
All of them have been very suc- 
cessful. Some of these have gone 
on to other professions. Two have 
become state supervisors in for- 
eign languages in schools, one is 
a city supervisor, and one teaches 
in the Cleveland, Ohio school 
system which has the most out- 
standing French education in the

Political Science Series 
Opens Thursday In S.U. 

Bernard Crick, lecturer at the 
London School of Economics and 
Political Science, will speak at 
the first Political Science Collo- 
quium of 1960-01 sponsored by 
the department of government at 
the University of Massachusetts. 

Crick will talk on "The char- 
acter of American political 
thought" Thursday at 4 p.m. in 
the Commonwealth Room of the 
Student Union at the University. 

Author of a recent book, "The 
American Science of Politics," 

Crick has caused a great deal of 
controversy because of his attack 
on what he has called the 
"pseudo-scientific" nature of the 
study of political science in this 

Before assuming teaching du- 
ties at London, Crick spent sev- 
eral years in the United States, 
studying at Harvard and the 
University of California and 
teaching at Vanderbilt. This 
year he is doing research at 
Harvard on a Rockefeller Foun- 
dation grant. 




Here's the car that reads you loud and 
clear — the new-size, you-size '61 Chev- 
rolet. We started out by trimming the 
outside size a bit (to give you extra inches 
of clearance for parking and maneuvering) 
but inside we left you a full measure of 
Chevy comfort. Door openings are as 
much as 6 inches wider to give feet, knees, 
and elbows the undisputed right of way. 
And the new easy-chair seats are as much 
as 14% higher — just right for seeing, just 
right for sitting. 

Once you've settled inside you'll have 
high and wide praises for Chevrolet's 
spacious new dimensions (in the Sport 
Coupes, for example, head room heis been 
upped as much as 2 inches, and there's 
more leg room, too — front and rear). 
Chevy's new trunk is something else that 
will please you hugely — what with its 
deep-well shape and bumper-level loading 
it holds things you've never been able to 
get in a trunk b-fore. 

Yet, generously endowed as this car is 
with spaciousness and clean-etched ele- 
gance, it holds steadfastly to all the thrifty, 
dependable virtues (Chevrolet buyers have 
come to take for granted. Your dealer's

Last semester the initial plans 
and principles constituting the 
Flying Club were drawn up by 
Parker Shanahan, '60. On August 
18, 1960, the organization came 
into existence and the following 
officers were elected: President 
Jack Giurleo, Vice-President Pat 
Daher, Secretary Jackie Aube, 
and Treasurer Dorothy Lurie. 
The advisor of the club is Donald 
Cadigan, Associate Registrar. 
Membership, which is present- 

ly at forty is open to the entire 
student community — students, 
faculty, and personnel. 

As the Flying Club is a non- 
tax-supported organization, pay- 
ment of "the loan" is being made 
possible through student dues. 
There are two basic i)lans offered 
to the members in i-elation to 
dues: Plan A costs the individual 
$10 per semester, and there are 
the costs of instruction. Plan B 
involves the payment of $50, 
thii-ty dollars of which is con- 
sidered as a "floating loan" to 
the corporation, and twenty dol- 
lars of which is for dues; an in- 
dividual in Plan B is offered fly-

Cross-Country Squad Places 
Close Second In Tri-Meet 

Maine defeated Massachusetts 
and Northeastern in a cross- 
country tri-meet 31-32-60 despite 
a fine showing by the Redmen 
Harriers. The victor, led by ace 
Kimball, placed in the first, 
fifth, sixth, ninth, and tenth 
spots to edge out the Footrick- 
men who took second, third, and 
fourth, but could then only gather 
an eleventh and twelfth place to 
complete their scoring. North- 
eastern grabbed a sixth place 
finish by Abeelon, and then sev- 
enth, thirteenth, fourteenth, and 
fifteenth place finishes to wind 
up a distant third in the meet. 

Kimball ran a great race, as 
was expected, and took the hon- 

by DICK QUINN, '63 

ors with a fine time of 20 min- 
utes, 31 seconds over the four and 
a third mile course. He was fol- 
lowed by sophomore sensation 
Dave Balch, who made his var- 
sity debut a memorable affair as 
he crossed the line a brief six- 
teen seconds later with a timing 
of 20 mins. 47 seconds. Redmen 
Bloomstrom and Buschman pur- 
sued teammate Balch with 20 
min. 50 second and 20 min. 53 
second finishes respectively. 

At this point it looked like a 
sure conquest for Mass., but 
Maine pushed across Heinrich, 
Hatch, Wentworth, and Keup be- 
fore O'Brien and F'roctor could 

bring Mass. its fourth and fifth 
places in to complete its scoring. 

Meanwhile Northeastern 's 
Abeelon and Perillo crossed in 
sixth and seventh places just 
ahead of the Maine barrage. The 
Huskies then rounded out their 
scoring when, in succession, Tay- 
lor, Kneeland, and Woodland 
crossed after Redman Proctor. 

Despite the close loss to the 
well-balanced Maine team, Coach 
Footrick was pleased with his 
team's effort, especially the per- 
formance of his sophomore group, 
and is quite optimistic that his 
hill-and-dalers can captpre the 
winners' laurels against Union 
College this Wednesday. 

UMass Boaters Defeated By 
Clarke In Hard Fought Game 

Last Saturday afternoon the 
UMass Soccer team was once 
again thwarted in its bid for the 
initial win of the season. This 
time they went down to defeat 
at the hands of Clarke in a close- 
ly contested struggle, 3-2. 

Although UMass actually out- 
played their opponents, a few 
momentary lapses cost them the 
game. These mistakes were due 
to lack of experience, however, 
and with each passing game the 
team is improving. 

The Redmen scored first, early 
in the second period as Dave 
Amundsen found the range. 
Clarke tied it up shortly there- 
after and the score read 1-1 at 
halftime. Clarke roared back and 
scored a goal in each of the last 
two periods. 

The Redmen edged closer with 
a score at the opening of the 
fourth quarter but were unable to 
gain the equalizer. 

UMass missed glittering op- 
portunities to score on two dif- 
ferent occasions as the squad 
had free shots on the goal as the 
result of Clarke infractions. They 
were unable to convert them, 
however, and the score stood 3-2. 

Bob Chiesa playe<l a good game 
in the goal for the Redmen 
hooters as he was pressed into 
action when the starting goalie 


was injured. Andy Psilackus 
played a fine game, scoring one 
of the Umass goals. 

The team is, at the moment, 
extremely hampered and handi- 
capped by injuries to key players. 
If they can ever get together as 
a sound unit again, it definitely 
will brighten the picture and im- 

prove the team's performance. 

Wednesday the crew travels to 
Williams to play last year's top 
New England team. Williams, by 
the way, has most of their top 
players back this year, which 
makes UMass's task doubly hard. 
Saturday the Redmen host Con- 
necticut in what shapes up to be 
a r^l ding-dong affair. 

Quarterback Club Reviews 
Thrills Of Harvard Clash 

The third weekly meeting of 
the Quarterback Club was held 
yesterday noon in the Ballroom, 
with a capacity crowd attending. 

Films of the Harvard game 
were shown, as Coaches Chet 
Gladchuk and Dick MacPherson 
analyzed the plays and pointed 
out high spots. 

Coach MacPherson then dis- 
cussed the next rival for the 
Redmen — UConn. He pointed out 
that though the Huskies have 
been winless in two games thus 
far, they have been playing out 
of their class (Yale and Rutgers) 
and are sure that, upon return- 
ing to their regular YanCon foes, 
they will return to their winning 

No Yankee Conference team 
has beaten Connecticut in four 

years, and the Storrsmen are 
confident that they will regain 
their former mastery of the 
league, starting with the Redmen 

The Huskies have size, speed 
and power, all of which they use 
very effectively on offense and 

They are using primarly the 
same offense as last year. That 
means that it won't be as hard 
for the Redmen defensemen to 
find the ball as to get it. 

UConn has a very good pass 
offense, but Coach MacPherson 
was quick to add that the Red- 
men have a very good passer. 

"It's a good team," said Coach 
Mac, "and we're worried." But 
of course we were worried last 
week too, weren't we?

It's World Series time again. 
The Yankees and the Pirates 
square off today at Forbes Field, 
with the Yanks heavily favore<I 
to win. 

Pittsburgh, awaiting its first 
World Series in 33 years, isn't

though. The Bucs have a lot of

enough to stop the .mighty

make a comeback with the Red 
Sox. He signed recently for a 
sum in excess of $75,000, which 
would make him the second high- 
est player in Red Sox history — 
second, of course, to Ted Wil- 
liams, who retired last week. 

Amid the furor over Jensen's 
signing and Williams' retiring, 
rumors are spreading that Ted 
may yet return for more next 
season. The thought of being so 
close to Jimmy Foxx's all time 
home run record is weighing 
heavily on Ted and keeping him 
from sleeping nights. When ask- 
ed about a possible return, Ted 
replied that he would consider it 
only "if Mr. Yawkey asks me." 
That's a hint, Mr. Yawkey! 

1. What are the real first 
names of Ed Bailey, Rip Repul- 
ski, and Duke Snider? ... 2. 
Name the pitcher off whom Ted 

Williams hit his 500th home run. 
... 3. No Detroit Tiger pitcher in 
40 years had thrown a no-hitter 
until 1952 That year, I threw two, 
defeating the Washington Sena- 
tors and New York Yankees. 
Who Am I? 

It looks like Gene Conley will 
be playing for the Celtics again 
this year. Conley, who until 
yesterday was pitching for the 
Philadelphia Phillies, walked out 
in a huff due to the "constant 
heckling" of manager Gene 
Mauch. Conley claimed that be- 
fore every game, Mauch would 
needle him about playing both 
basketball and baseball. The 
heckling got so bad that Conley 
walked put on Mauch, without 
his pay, and announced that he 
would report to the Celtics on 
Oct, 15. Conley said he won't re- 
turn to the Phils. 


1. The given names are Lonas 
Bailey, Eldon Repulski, and Ed- 
win Snider ... 2. Ted hit the big 
one off Wynn Hawkins. . . 3. Vir- 
gil Trucks, the "Fireball," pitched 
the two no-hitters. 

The New York Giants of the 
NFL are looking very good this 
year. Despite the fact that they 
are being hotly pursued by the 
other members of their division, 
t looks like they'll still end up 
on top in their half. 

They're not good enough to 
beat the Colts, though, who'll be 
the winners in their league and 
top the Giants in the play-offs. 

McCormick Selected To 
E.C.A.C. All-East Eleven 

UMass quarterback John Mc- 
Cormick has been selected to the 
weekly All-East team of the 
Eastern College Athletic Asso- 

McCormick, from Belmont, di- 
rected the UMass upset of Har- 
vard, Saturday, by completing 
seven of eleven pass attempts, for 
a total of 96 yards and one touch- 
down. He also scored another 
touchdown himself. 

McCormick's passing was the 
difference in the Harvard en- 

counter, as the Crimson weren't 
able to complete a single pass in 
eleven tries. 

Also selected to the ECAC 
team was guard John Meshino 
of Boston University, who played 
an important role in the Terrier's 
20-14 conquest of Holy Cross. 

McCormick will have his work 
cut out for him this Saturday 
when the Redmen meet Connecti- 
cut in the annual Homecoming 
game. A large turnout is expect- 
ed to greet the victorious squad.

Are Undefeated Entering 
Second Intramurals 


As the second week of Intra- 
mural Football rolls around Kap- 
pa Sigma has a substantial lead 
in League A while SAE, AEPi, 
and PMD are trying to break out 
on top in League B. 

In Monday night's first game 
ASP stomped over PSD, 30-0, 
SAE stunned PMD by shutting 
them out, 20-0, KS continued its 
undefeated season by edging out 
ATG, 31-18, and TC scooted past 
LCA, 19-6. 

Bill Boyle was the big gun for 
Alpha Sig Monday night scoring 
three touchdowns. Art Learson 
pitched all five TDs, three to 
Boyle and llie remainder to Jack 
Campbell. ASP defense proved 
very firm as they showed that 
this team would definitely be in 
contention for league honors. 

In the second game SAE shut 
out PMD, 20-0. However, the 
first half was very close with 
SAE scoring only once on a run 
by quarterback E. Connolley. 
Kevin Judge caught the pass for 
the extra point as SAE led at the 
half, 7-0. The second half was 
quite a different story since SAE 
ran rampant and completely 
dominated the game. 

Quarterback Ed Connolly ran 
for another touchdown and passed 
to Don Tomasetti for still an- 
other. An additional point after 
TD was made on a pass from the 
QB to end Carl Pierce. SAE won, 


Theta Chi managed to capture 
the night's third event by down- 

by JAY BAKER '63 

ing Lambda Chi, 19-6. Barry 
Saltis, QB for TC, was the big 
standout scoring two touchowns 
and passing for the third. How- 
ever LCA did manage to put up 
an exceptional fight as the score 
was deadlocked at 6-6 at the end 
of the first half. 

LCA scored first on a pass 
from quarterback Gig Khouri to 
end Charlie Lapier. TC retaliated 
quickly on a run by quarterback 
Saltis to tie the game at the half. 
In the second half Barry Saltis 
scooted through the secondary 
for the score and then passed to 
Bob McDonough for the extra 
point. In the waning minutes of 
the game McDonough received a 
pass from the quarterback for 
another score. The final tabula- 
tion was TC 19 LCA 6. 

In the final game of the night, 
Kappa Sig outlasted ATG, 31-18. 
Paul Wennick passed for five 
touchdowns and an extra point as 
signal-caller for KS. Fran Julian- 
no scored twice while Phil Athen- 
as, Rod Corey, and Tony Simone 
each scored one touchdown. 

ATG showed considerable 
strength but was just unable to 
pull it through. Halfback Bill 
Smith ran for the first score. 
Quarterback Larry Coyle passed 
to Smith and jogged around end 
for the final TDs. The final tally 
came as a result of an intercep- 
tion by defenseman Bob Allen. 
The end result was KS 31 and 
ATG 18. 

On Tuesday, Sept. 27th, in the 

final game Kappa Sig blanked 

W<?dnesday Sept. 28th SPE 
shut out SAE 26-0 while regain- 
ing their previous year's form.

AGR 20-6 and LCA just edged 
out favored TKE, 25-24.

Touchdown at Game 



Prof. Riesman Speaks | Bill Requesting Appropriation 

On American Colleges 

Associate Editor 

Sociologist David Riesman of 
Harvard University addressed a 
capacity crowd in the SU Ball- 
room Tuesday night on "The 
Changing American College". 

Riesman focused his attention 
upon the objectives of students 
entering college. "Students must 
learn to play from weaknesses, 
not strengths," he stated. "An 
entering freshman tends to pro- 
tect his feelings of inadequacy 
by continuing to do what he does 
best. This early closure and self- 
definition are bad." He added 
that it is not always best for stu- 
dents to develop their best 
aspects exclusively. 

"A college should encourage a 
student to try himself out, and 
not hurry into early vocational- 
ism. Students must be protected 
from a loss of a clear career aim, 
and encouraged to believe that 
many careers are open." 

Riesman also discussed college 
reputations, stating that the 
"best" institution may not be the 
"best" for a particular individual. 
"These institutions suffer from 
certain defects in their virtues," 
he added. 

Faculty Contacts Stressed 
"It is important for a student 
to have enough faculty contact so 

as not to regard his instructors 
as 'them'," he stated. Riesman 
regards the smaller classes as 
being important, for some stu- 
dents won't learn in mass lectures 
because they believe these sec- 
tions demand only rote answers. 
Students must also see teachers 
in a non-class atmosphere. 

When asked how the faculty 
might be encouraged to give

vote pending more information. 
An appropriation of $502 was 
voted for the purchase of the

Capital Outlay Bill which ha.s 
been passed in the Senate and i.< 
waiting for House approval. 

After the ruling outlawing tht 
State Building Association, Gov. 
Foster Furcolo vetoed a bill 
ing for money for the dorms. The 
bill would have been ineffective 
if passed, because the money 
could not have been borrowed 
anyway. Bondholders would not 
buy bonds in an association with 
an "unconstitutional" tinge to it. 
Thus the UMass Building Asso- 
ciation is "out of commission" 
until it is either declared legal 
as is or is changed slightly to as- 
•Nure legality. 

However, even if a new Build- 
ing Association is set up, it will 
not be able to operate in time to 
start construction for new dorms 
by next year. Thus the Capital 
Outlay Bill still must be passed 
to build the necessary dorms. 

To assure legality of the 
UiMass Building Association, it is 
necessary to draft a bill which 
will protect the bondholders by 
backing up the bonds issued by 
the Association. 

The legislation proposed that 
in the Capital Outlay Bill the 
two dorms will be requested "in 
the hope that a new Building 
Association can be set up" so 
that the university won't have to 
rely on legislative appropriations 
of money in the Capital Outlay 

If the Capital Outlay Bill 
passes the House as it passed the 
Senate, the university will have 
two new dorms next year. If it 
doesn't, the university won't have 
new dorms, as there is no other 
vehicle by which to obtain money. 
The UMass Building Associa- 
tion has been in operation for 
about twenty years, without the 
question of legality enterin,? the 
picture. The bondholders had in- 
vested in the Association after 
careful approval of the method 
by bond attorneys; all of the 
dormitories on campus except 
"the Abby," plus the SU, were 
built under this plan. Now, how- 
ever, it is necessary to have 
further legislation of the bonds 
before the Association can go 
back into circulation.

Public Talks 

To Be Opened 
By Yourgrau 

"The Scientist — Plumber or 
Metaphysician?" will be dis- 
cussed in a public lectuie at 
UMass next week. The speaker 
will be Professor Heinrich W. J. 
Yourgrau, visiting professor of 
the history of science at Smith 
and Amherst Colleges. 

The lecture, first in a series 
of four to be given by Professor 
Yourgrau during the academic 
year, is under sponsorship of the 
University's department of phi- 
losophy. The opening talk will 
be given on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 
8 p.m., in the Middlesex-Nan- 
tucket Rooms of the S.U. The 
public is invited to attend. 

Profes.sor Yo-.irgrau, formerly

was research professor of the 
philosophy of science at the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota last year. 
He has also served as visiting 
professor of philosophy at New

The domestic program of the

a series of lectures given by 
Senator Flanders in the Council 
Chambers of the S.U., Wednesday 
at 4:00. The change in scheduled 
topic from foreign relations to 
domestic programs was made be- 
cause the difficulties at the 
United Nations leave some for- 
eign relations in question.

program to the foreign policy by 
making his main objective to 
strengthen American economics 
as part of the defense program. 
By this, he has endeavored to tie 
himself to Roosevelt's historical 
politics in the domestic program. 
"Kennedy seems to imply," stated 
Flanders, "that he wishes to be 
the successor of Ex-President 
Roosevelt." What, exactly, is 
Kennedy trying to inherit? 

"The Roosevelt administration 
had three high points, excluding 
the war. There was one success, 
one failure and one calamity."

Hie, Hike, Hoe 

Although those spirits of inebriating sorts no longer 
manifestly play a part in the UM campus social-ties, we 
students may find delight in Spirits of two other kinds. 
With the Dying-to-VVin Spirit, the bandstanders can gusto 
the football team into a great game Saturday. And with the 
purchase of a balloon at tonight's parade, all of us can boost 
the Spirit of "intellectuosity." Back the IFC this weekend 
in the campaign for new books and know that the Spirit 
gives pep and zest to another game — the game of seeking 
knowledge. If your balloon pops, get another! 

We Meet The President 

The student body will have its first oppoi-tunity to see 
and hear the president at tonight's rally. 

While this cannot be considered an official convocation 
introducing the president since he is expected to say no 
more than a few words, it is probably the only time the 
students will get to see him this semester. 

It was unfortunate that the president could not as- 
sume his duties until school had been in session for two 
weeks. Nothing could be done about this delay, but why it 
has taken nearly two weeks for the student body to meet 
the president is inexcusable. 

Perhaps the administration didn't feel that the student 
body was important enough to take an hour of the presi- 
dent's time. This is rather unlikely since past policy has 
given full recognition to the impoi-tiince of a good student- 
administration relationship. 

Perhaps it was felt that the students weren't interested 
in the man who has become the head of their university. 
South College has no right to make this assumption, which 
is quite absurd anyway. 

Perhaps the new president felt that since he was not in 
a position to make a "State of the University" address, he 
had nothing of value to say to the students. This is reason- 
ably valid, until one considers that this obviously has not 
been a consideration with freshman convocations. 

Whatever happened to our formal address from the 
new president, it is quite plain that somebody in South 
College really fouled up. Practically everything about the 
president's arrival was completely disorganized, the re- 
sponsibility of which rests squarely upon the shoulders of 
the administration. L. R. 

— The 'Four Fre edoms 

First ^jneiidment 

(Editorial reprinted from the New York Times, Wed., Oct. 5. 1960) 

Too frequently in the jmst Congressional committees 
seeking to preserve the security of the United States have 
failed to understand the meaning of the First Amendment, 
confuting dissent with disloyalty, criticism with subversion. 
That was McCarthyism, which has declined but has not yet 
died. Too frequently in the present do ive still see evidence 
of the same mentality, in both the Senate Internal Security 
subcommittee ami its counterpart; the House Un-American 
Activities Committee. 

At the present moment the Internal Security group is 
the more obvious offender. It is attempting to force the 
scientist Limus Pauling to reveal the names of persons who 
helped collect 11,000 signatures to a 1958 petition urging 
an international agreement to stop testing nuclear iveapons 
—something that the committee apparently feels had a sub- 
versive tinge to it at the U.N. then, although the United 
States Government is pursuing the same objective at 
Geneva now. Dr. Pauling says that to make public the 
names of those who helped circulate the petition might lead 
to ''reprisals." Whether or not his fears are justified, it is 
evident that the committee is pursuing its usual policy of 
harassment of suspected Lrft-Wingers and dissenters in its 
pursuit of Dr. Pauling. 

The mvntaUty of the Senate committee is ivell illus- 
trated by another matter that has recently come to light. 
This was its degrading action last spring in questioning 
Kenneth Tynan, the British drama critic who was then 
visiting this country, about his views on Cuba and about the 
script of a television show he had helped produce in Eng- 
land voicing the opinions of a number of well-known Ameri- 
can ''dissenters." To suggest, as the questioning did, that 
there was something wrong in Mr. Tynan's holding political 
opinions contrary to those of the President of the United 
States makes the committee appear even more ridiculous 
than it is and — something much more important — under- 
mines American democratic principles. 

And — just to remind ourselves that all the infringe- 
ments of personal liberty are not committed by Congres- 
sional committees but sometimes are committed by their 
state counterparts~Dr. Willard Uphaus is still in a NevJ 
Hampshire jail. 




Ben-Hur has clattered i«to Sprin^eld, embel- 
lished with all the trappings of a spectacular: gar- 
gantuan buildings, costumes as endless as the tramp- 
ing columns of Roman soldiers, the Roman way of 
life a little bloodier than usual, and the screen a 
little bigger to contain all of this. In the midst of 
this splendor, the picture attempts a serious study 
of personal revenge, while at the same time it en- 
deavors to be a "tale of the Christ" as the great, 
gold letters at its beginning proclaim. 

On the contrary, it is the struggle of a protag- 
onist, Judah Ben-Hur, against a childhood-friend- 
turned-enemy, Messala, a rising young Roman ruler. 
Ben-Hur is an amiable young Jewish prince, oc- 
casionally showing rebellious tendencies against his 
Roman overseers, but never endangering his own 
neck. Messala has become a Roman-organization- 
man: indoctrinated and ambitious to the extreme of 
using his former friend against the Jews. Ben-Hur's 
stoic refusal to sell his people down the river is 
cause for the hand of friendship to turn into a fist 
of hatred, 

Messala shows his disapproval of Ben Hur by 
arresting him at the first drop of a tile and soon 
Ben Hur finds himself chained to the galley of a 
ship as a condemned slave. His rise from the galley 
to a victory march down the rose-strewn streets of 
Rome is rapid, once he saves the life of the ship's 
commander. While enjoying the grandeur that was 
Rome, he picks up the art of chariot-racing, and 
soon it's back to Judea to challenge Messala. 

The chariot race itself has not been exaggerated; 
it is an incredible scene and one of the most realis- 
tic ever filmed. These nine minutes of chills and 
spills are worth the price of admission. 

The photography is excellent and the sweeping 
scenes are well-integrated; the focus never strays 
far from the hero. There are a few human touches 
in this epic, and occasionally the characters break 
out of their stilted roles. The Arab trader whose 
horses Ben-Hur drives to victory is a wonderfully 
human character, and his humor helps relieve some 
of the tension of the race itself. Both Ben-Hur and 
Messala have moments when they show some depth, 
but these are unfortunately few. The scenes in which 
Christ appears are conventional and perhaps too 
carefully handled, for they are reduced to mere stage 

But Ben-Hur is perhaps the best spectacular ever 
produced. It is never-tiring, and never fails to 
amaze, startle, or horrify. As a serious motion pic- 
ture it has failed, but it is a magnificent failure. 


We can expect this year that many candidates 
for public office will speak here at UMass. 

We should also expect that their impression of 
the University— as a whole— will be strongly in- 
fluenced by their reception. Taking into light our 
extremely close ties with the state legislature— poli- 
ticians— it is important that they be received well. 

In the past our reception of candidates has been 
poor. This means that poor impressions were 
created. Sunday, Thomas J. O'Connor— candidate for 
the United States Senate— is speaking here. Our re- 
ception for him will be his impression of us. Let's 
make that impression a good one.

A Common Bondage 

To the Editor: 

In response to the thought-provoking and un- 
fortunately true article in the Collegian of Oct. 5, 
may we say that the first thing that we noticed, as 
freshmen, here at the University was the lack of 
enthusiasm among the students of this institution. 
This fact was glaringly evident at the football ral- 
lies where the football team itself comprised more 
than half of the upperclassmen present. However, 
the students may not be wholly to blame for this. 
It is possible that the administration is partly to 
blame for lack of enthusiasm and general apathetic 
regard for the university. 

What the students need, in our opinion, is some- 
thing to create a common bond in which all are in- 
terested. The current football team is a step in the 
right direction but tradition would help immensely. 
The first section of last year's Handbook relating 
past traditions at the University was of particularly 
great interest to us. Where are they or their evolved 
counterparts now? I know of no traditions main- 
tained by the University students and upheld by 
the administration. Almost any activity that could 
have evolved into a tradition seems to have been 
voted out by the administration, labeling it irrespon- 

As stated in the article by J. H. D., the Univer- 
sity is composed of young adults. Why does not the 
administration treat them as such? Let the students 
make some of their own decisions. 

One of the primary functions of a University is to 
educate the students. To make of them mature men 
and women, capable of accepting responsibility and 
of making intelligent decisions, decisions in the so- 
cial and moral fields as well as the fields of busi- 
ness. How can this be accomplished if the adminis- 
tration makes almost all of these decisions for the 
students ? 

As you know, the University is in the process of 
rapid expansion or growth. Will this growth result 
in the formation of a campus where a person has 
enthusiasm only for what happens in his or her im- 
mediate group? The best way to grow is with an 
increase both in the size of the campus and in our 
pride and enthusiasm for our school. 

We are now experiencing the first part, which 
may be the easiest, but the second part, a growth 
in the spirit for the school will not come about on 
its own — it needs a catalyst. 

Another point may be mentioned briefly. If there 
is no tradition at a school, how can the alumni be 
expected to remember their alma mater, at times 
when it needs them most. If they see nothing to re- 
mind them of their own years spent here, how can 
they have pride in their school and enthusiasm for 
its betterment? 

We believe that the administration should relax 
its controls over the students, who will in the future 
become alumni, and allow this pride and enthusiasm 
to grow and flourish. When the students are able to 
make their own decisions, they will undoubtedly call 
on the administration for advice. 

To expand successfully we need to advertise. The 
best way to advertise is to have a reputation and 
the best reputation is spirit for our institution. The 
best way to promote enthusiasm among the students 
is to share a common goal. This in our mind is TRA- 

If anyone, student or faculty, has a solution to 
a campus of apathy, we are sure many students here 
would appreciate your contribution.

To the Editor: 

A few minutes ago an officer of the campus 
police came into my room with a list of objects 
which, I imagine, were in my room illegally in the 
eyes of housing. In my case these "illegal objects" 
were signs. I don't know how housing uncovered my 
little cache of contraband goods, but this isn't the 
first time that housing's little men have come across 
these obnoxious objects. It seems that they go mean- 
dering from room to room whenever they dam well 

My second day here, a counselor came in the 
room and informed me that there were five suit- 
cases in the room. I didn't even know this. Before 
that weekend, when they were disposed of, he was 
in four more times. I don't know what the objection 
is to suitcases, except that maybe they could con- 
tain a virgin or even an unregistered car. 

I don't know what's going to go next, but as un- 
comfortable as it is, I hope they leave the bed.

Few students were placed by 
the time they graduated, and 
many were still looking for work 
the following year. And the fu- 
ture looked even gloomier as gov- 
ernment economists announced 
the United States economy had 
reached maturity. 

However, the 19G0 college grad- 
uate is pretty sure to have a job 
by fall, the survey showed. 

Starting paychecks for 1960 
graduates were five to six times 
larger than in 1935. Engineers 
without experience are receiving 
from $525-550 per month and 
other graduates from $400-475. 

Some engineering students 
with advanced degi^es in special- 
ized fields have signed for as 
high as $12,000 a year. 

Although the job situation for 
graduates continues to be better, 
the report indicates recruiters 
are becoming more selective and 
placing moi« importance on a 
good school record. 

Followinft are excerpts from 
key yeai'S in the firm's 25 year 

1936: Demand for graduates 
about double that of 1935. 

1940: The war in Europe cre- 
ates greatly increased demand for 
American college graduates. 
1943: The American economy 
found a place for the woman 
graduate as male seniors went 
into the armed forces immediate- 
ly upon graduation. 

1947: The postwar boom cre- 
ates record demand for college 
grads. Engineers starting at 
$225-$300 and other graduates 

1951 : Highest starting salaries 
on record, with engineering sen- 
iors assured of average of $300 
per month to start. 

1957: Number of firms inter- 
viewing graduates outnumbers 
seniors at some colleges. Some 
campus facilities too small to 
accommodate all employment 
scouts and hotel facilities used 
in spme instances. Engineers as- 
sured about $450 a month and 
liberal arts grads $400.

RIGHT THROUGH THE LINE— It was with plays like this that the Redmen brought down mighty 
Harvard last Saturday. It will be a little tougher finding weak spots in the big Connecticut line, 

University of Massachusetts 
and the UConn teams. The foot- 
ball rivalry between the two 
schools started in 1897, and Sat- 
n day's outcome will be the tie- 
breaker. It must be mentioned, 
ho vcvo;-, that UConn has won 
o'vht of the nine games in recent 
c »m))etItion, losing only in 1954, 

It's not going to be any push- 
over for the surging UMass 
toim. Connecticut has a big, well 
balniced team, with plenty of 
drive, and they'll be after our 
scalp J with everything they can 
throw at u •. 

Although they haven't won a 
game as yet this year, their losses 
have cOiYxo at the hands of Rut- 
gers and Yale (19-6) (11-8), two 
rugged teams. 

However, if the Massmen play 
as well as they did against Har-

Sports magazine has rated the 
UMass squad over UConn in this 
clash, while picking Harvard to 
beat Cornell, whom the Kedmen 
defeated in a scrimmage before 
the season. 

In addition to going for their 
first win against UConn since 
'54, the tribe will be aiming at 
its fir.^t homecoming victory since 
that date. I think they owe that 
mucli to the alumni!. 

Harvard, a team which had 
been picked to have an undefeat- 
ed y. ar and take the Ivy League 
crown away from Penn., will be 
after that title without the serv- 
icer of helmsman Charlie Ra- 
venal, who was hurt last weekend. 
Th(> Jawns will open their tweed 
competition this Saturday against 
Cornell, generally thought to be 
the number three team in the cir- 
cuit. It'll be a long haul for the 
Johnnies, and Terry Bartolet, the 
signal caller who faced the Red- 
men in last week's second half, 
will be doing his best to keep his 
team in contention. 

The UMass Cross country team 
defeated a Union College squad, 
Wednesday, all seven of the Har- 
riers finishing before the first 
member of the opponent's team. 
They can't do any better than a 
50-15 victory. (A more complete

The group, headed by Presi- 
dent Richard Eid '56, meets every 
Tuesday evening at the Robin's 
Den in Agawam. 

Films of the preceding Satur- 
day's UMass game are viewed 
with narration by one of the 
members of Coach Chuck Stud- 
loy's staff. A brief report on the 
coming week's game is also pre- 

After closely watching the

ners and they will be awarded 

Winners thus far include: 
Maine game — lineman, Paul 
Majeski; back, John McCormick. 
A.I.C. game — lineman, Bob 
Foote; back, Roger Benvenuti. 
Harvard game — lineman, Paul 
Majeski; back, Sam Lussier and 
John McCormick (tie).

is for all the marbles. If the Red-

Con champs, they'll be favored to 
wear the conference crown come 

The Redmen, thus far, have 


tompile.l an unblemshed record 
with victories over Maine, AIC, 
and Harvard. These triumphs, to- 
gether with last season's final 
two wins, give the Massmen the 
lonjifost streak since the Lou 
Dash r a of lO.'H when the Red- 
ni ni rol'ed up six consecutive vic- 
tories. During the 1982-.S3 cm- 
paigns UMass chalked up fi\e 
r.traight wins. 

The Connecticut gridders ha\e 
been le.^^ fortunate than their 
I'M rival.; this season. The 
Huskier have collided with two 
formidable opponents, Yale and 
Rutgers, and have been edged in 
both games. 

The Storrsmen have a veteran 
squad that features lettermen at 
every position except center. 

Quarterback j.vv.i\ CONWAY should be seeing a lot of action 
along with JOHN McCORMICK, tomorrow, after his Harvard 

Dave Bishop manned the middle 
of the line last season, but was 
convertvid to a signal caller this 
y^ar. Lack of experience, though, 
has ke;)t his aerials at a mini- 
mum. For this all important 
j;am3. Coach Hob Ingalls will 
•irobably insert Tom Kopp in the 
QIJ slot and u e Bishop on de- 
fense where he has been very 
('rf;vt;ve as a linebacker. Pete 
Bnrbar to will f'll in for Kopp at 
t'l ' vacated half back position. 
Hard-running Bill Minnerly will 
o:'cupy the other HB position and 
I'm Browning and Ralph Rinaldi 
will alternate at fullback. The forward wall is compo5;ed 
of eiidi Tom Conroy and Tony 
Pignatello, both highly capable 
performers. Bob Treat, back after 
a year's absence, and Roger 
Gange are the tackles. John 
Sadaic and Fred Stackpole will 
be in the guard positions. 

The injury list in the Redmen 
camp has continued to mount. 
Starting left guard, Jerry Cullen, 
suffered an ankle injury and prob- 
ably won't see any action. The 
right end. Harry Williford, is suf- 
fering f"om a bad case of hives, 
and his playing status is doubt- 

T]ie re;t of the Massachusetts 
starting lineup should be es- 
sentially the same as the one 
used against Harvard. Most of 
Mas achusetts' success can be at- 
tribnted to its well-balanced pass 
ing and running attack and more 
of the same will be in store for 
the Huskies tomorrow. 

Quarterback John McCormick 
has completed 25 of 41 
for .'M8 yards and two touch- 
downs . . . Harry Williford has 
snared six of these aerials for 
149 yards . . . Leading scorers

Sam Lussier has piled up 100 
yards for a 4.1 average per carry

Coach CHICK SI L DLEY of the UMass Redmen is looking ahead 
to bigger and better things. After coming to us from HIinois, he 
has made LMass a top contender, not only in the Yankee Confer- 
ence, but in the New England states. He'll be pinning a lot of 
his hopes on the game with UConn, the winner standing a good 
chance to land the bean pot title. 

Coach Studley Hopes 
To Shatter UConn Jinx 

(Repiinted from New 
The last time the Uni-ersity of 
Massachusetts had a capacity 
crowd (11.000) for a home game 
was in lOfifi for a game v.ith the 
University of Connecticut. The 
home team was beaten, 71-6, anrl 
no one really cared very much 
about football on the campus at 
Amherst thereafter as the Red- 
men lost many more than they 

Connecticut, last beaten by a 
Yankee Conference foe in 1955, 
visits the Massachusetts campus 
again this Saturday and another 
sell-out crowd is anticipated. But 
the score will not be 71-6. 

The team this time is 
undefeated after three games, the 
conquerer of Harvard (plus Cor- 
nell in a pre-season scrimmage), 
and football is all the talk around 
the fast-growing state university. 
Much of the credit goes to 
Charles B. (Chuck) Studley who 
at 31 must be one of the young- 
est head coaches in the country. 
Studley, who for five years was 
the line coach at his alma mater, 
Illinois, under Ray Eliot, has 
done a convincing job of selling 
himself and the game to an in- 
different university since his ar- 
rival last spring. Right now he 
is on top of his little world. 

Speaking of the up.set of Har- 
vard last Saturday, he said, "The 
hardest job I've had is to sell 
these boys on themselves. I hope 
they've learned now they can be 
as good as they want to be." 

Studley leads from faith. He 
thought his team could beat

Mas.sachu.setts, which last had 
a winning season in 1952, had

A year ago the record 
was 3-5-1 under coach Charley

is built around 19 lettermen. 
How does Studley explain the 

"Just hard work. I'm not one of

'omploted 25 of 41 pass attempts 
(.^oven of 11 against Harvard), 
b'lt the offense is not geared to 
t!ie air game. Rather it is a ball- 
control attack, stressing the four- 
yard gain between the tackles. 
In every contest so far UMass 
has had about 20 more offensive 
plays than its opponent. Studley 
calls his offense "a smorgasboard 
T" because it incorporates a 
little of everything. 

The team is not quite two deep 
— the sophomore center. Matt 
Col)»ns, played 60 minuted 
against Harvard. Another sopho- 
more, Sam Lu.ssier, is the notable^ 
running back. A third, end Paul 
Majeski, blocked a Harvard punt 
when he was not supposed to 
("Darndest thing I ever saw," 
said the coach). And a fourth 
yearling, Tom Brophy, is a start- 
ing guard. Everybody else is a 
letter man. 

And everybody on the squad is 
a resident of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts. The word in 
New England has been that U- 
Mass gets the second-best native 
high school players but, because 
the state is so rich a football 
recruiting ground, the second 
best are plenty good. 

In fact it was forecast in many 
circles that this university could 
become the one to challenge Con- 
necticut's dominant position in 
the Yankee Conference, provided 
the new coach was a good one. 

After just three games, Chuck 
Studley's boys' are looking the 
Connecticuts right in the eye.

Pay Raises 

State House legislative corri- 
dors buzzed today over the rec- 
ommendation of retiring State 
Treasurer John F. Kennedy of 
Canton that legislators' salaries 
bo increased to $10,000 a year. 

Currently, the House committee 
on bills in third reading is hold- 
ing a bill to uj) the salary K'vel 
from $5200 to $0500 until the at- 
titude of the Senate, reported 
against the measure, and the 
Governor, who has demanded a 
roll call, can be verified. 

The state treasurer, who can- 
not succeed himself after serving 
three consecutive terms and lost 
in the battle for the Democratic 
nomination for Governor, pointed 
out that "there is a groundswell 
of complaint" against the pro- 
posed boost but he still favors it. 
He also would give the Gov- 
ernor, now paid $20,000 a year, a 
salary of $200,000 annually which 

T, V. Commercials Require 
Big Money — Large Staffs 

Hollywood (UPI) — If you're high-priced TV commercials on 

one of the millions of TV viewers 
who are getting so they look 
forward to the commercial that 
interrupts their favorite pro- 
gram, you'll be interested to 
loarn it isn't an accident. 

A lot of big businesses are 
spending a lot of big money to 
keep you looking at your screen 
instead of heading for the kitch- 
en when they're putting on their 
sales pitch. 

That's the word from James H. 
Chapin, the head of a company 
which does nothing but turn out 

he contended was comparable to 
the compensation of business 
leaders heading a business of 
nearly $500,000,000; $50,000 each

"It is nothing unusual to have 
the one-minute commercials used 
during a 30-minute program cost 
more to produce than the pro- 
g-ram itself," said Chapin. 

Chapin's company, Parapick 
Service Corp., does nothing in 
the way of thinking up commer- 
cial ideas or writing the scripts. 
Its sole job is to take the ideas 
of an advertising agency and put 
them on film. 

"Right now we're starting work 
on a series of eight one-minute 
spots," he said. "They will cost 
$04,000, plus the cost of as many 
prints as the agency buys." 

Chapin said the most expen- 
sive commercial his company 
turned out was a two-minute 
color job for Chevrolet which 
cost $25,000. 

"It takes about four days to 
prepare for one day of shooting 
for good commercials," he said, 
"then it takes about three weeks 
to complete the job, adding the 
effects and sound." 

"For a one-minute commercial," 
Chapin said, "there are 35 men 
on his crew plus an editing staff 
of four. This does not include the 

"Then there is an optical staff 
of seven, if needed for such items 
as faders, and the crew employed 
at the laboratory where our film 
is sent to be handled." 

Chapin is a native of Spring- 
field, Mass.

Look Who Buys 
Hope Chests Now 

NEW YORK (UPI) — About 
40 per cent of all "hope chests" 
sold today are purchased by 
bachelors, as gifts for the girls 
who hoped and won them. 

That's what a leading manu- 
facturer of cedar chests found in 
a recent survey. In grandmother's 
day, a girl was given her "hope 
chest" early, to fill through her 
dreaming childhood, with house- 
hold handiwork. Today, the sur- 
vey showed, most of the girls 
who receive cedar chests — from 
beaux or others — get married 
within three months to one year. 

Suits have the long-haired furs 
as collars and cuffs. And coats 
carry the standaway, wedding 
ring collars, often detachable. 

Wes Roberts can tell you: 


When Wes Roberts was nearing the end of 
his senior year at San Jose State College, he was 
looking for a job with a wide open future. He 
found it when he joined Pacific Telephone in 
San Francisco. 

Here's how Wes tells it: "I remember one of 
my first jobs. The boss said, 'Wes, I want you 
to work out a plan showing where we'll need 
new field operating centers to keep up with 
Northern California's growth over the next 10 
years.' I didn't know whether I was more happy 
or scared." 

Wes didn't tell us (but his boss did) that he 
handled the report like a pro. And today, as a 

division supervisor, he's holding down a key 
telephone job. 

Wes Roberts' story is not unique in the Bell 
Telephone Companies. The telephone business 
is growing fast— and men are needed who can 
grow just as fast. 

Wes can tell you: "We get good training. 
But no one nurses you along. We hire managers 
-not errand boys. So far as I can see, there's no 
ceiling for a self-starter in this business." 

// you're a guy like Wes Roberts— if you like 
to bite off more than you can chew and then chew 
it — you'll want to visit your Placement Office for 
literature and additional information. 

Our number one aim is to have in all 
management jobs the most vital, intelli- 
gent, positive and imaginative men we 
can possibly find.**

Cincinnati College of Medicine. 

This red, itching eruption of 
the skin, especially on the hands, 
has been "loosely attributed" to 
these new cleaning agents, said 
Dr. Raymond R. Suskind, profes- 
sor of industrial medicine and 

Commonly used dishwashing 
and laundry cleansers rarely are 
the primary factor in the disease, 
a nine-year study showed. When 
other factors of the household 
routine were removed, doctors 
found that daily immersion of 
hands in soaps and detergents 
was not harmful. 

Hospitalized patients with skin 
diseases and others with normal 
skin were studied to determine 
the effect of cleansers on both. 
Results showed the products 
"rarely provoke allergic reac-

Emotional adjustment, previous 
skin problems, winter weather, 
and chemical agents such as food 
juices, dyes and solvents were 
listed among probable causes of 
the disease.

of the hands."

"THE 400 BLOWS" 




•-12 P.M. 




Cumming's Play Discussed 
At First C.A. Gen. Meeting 

The first C.A. General Meeting 
of the school year, held last Tues- 
day in Bartlett Aud., centered 
around "The Art of Salesman- 

E. E. Cummings' play, "Santa 
Claus", a dialogue between Death, 
played by Steve Allen, and 
Santa Claus, taken by Ben 
Benoit, was read to the assembly. 

This was followed by a dis- 
cussion by a panel composed of 
Dr. Louis Greenbaum of the His- 
tory Department, Rev. Donald 
Bossart, Assistant Chaplain, and 
Gail Osbaldeston. Dave Harrower 

served as moderator. 

The play raised questions on 
the purpose of an education, what 
wisdom is and how it is achieved. 
In the general discussion which 
ensued as questions were asked 
by the audience, the problem of 
acquiring fact.«; without under- 
standing came to light. Dr. 
Greenbaum stres.sed the import- 
ance of the individual. In the analysis, the acquiring of 
knowledge and wi.sdom i.«s an in- 
dividual affair.

more time to meeting their stu- 
dents informally, Riesman pro- 
posed "a sabbatical to do nothing 
but teach," alternated with sab- 
batical leaves for exclusive re- 
search endeavors. 

College Selection Discussed 

"There are no I.B.M. sorting 
processes for matching students 
to colleges. At some colleges it 
is hard to get an education. At 
others, it is impossible not to get 
an education. At state universi- 

ties such as UMass, it is possible 
to get an education, but one must 
work for it. 

'Colleges are not ;i Selective 
Service System for sorting out 
for society what .society claims 
to need," he commented. Asked 
who should go to college, he 
stated that if a college is put in 
the area, many will go to it, a.s 
in the case of thp California com- 
munity colleges. "One shouldn't 
bring the college to the con- 
sumer; it should be the other way 
around," said fiicsman.

The Journey, by Jiro Osaragi 
(Knopf): The American occu- 
pation left the mark of material- 
ism on Japan's younger genera- 
tion. In this sensitive, moving 
story about Easterners learning 
Western ways. Ryosuke Tsugawa 
is the young Japanese who suc- 
cumbs, despite the efforts of 
Taeko Okamoto, one of Japan's 
"new" young women who earns 
her own living and lives apart 
from her family. The pair met 
as they visited the grave of 
Taeko's cousin, who had been 
Ryosuke's schoolmate. Even as he 
has an affair with the charming 
and sensitive girl, he is attracted 
to a much older, sophisticated 
woman, wife of an impoverished 
aristocrat. Through the older 
woman, Ryosuke gets involved in 
a used-car racket. As a counter- 
point, Taeko's uncle finds money 
less important to him than it 
was in pre-war days when he 
made his student con pay interest 
on loans.

Roosevelt administration. Roose- 
velt's success was in the Social 
Security movement, and the fact 
that it has become a prominent 
element in America today. His 
one failure was his inability to 
end the depression, and the 
calamity was unemployment. 

It was hoped that Roosevelt 
would bring new optimism into 
the depression picture. Not only 
those around him, but also big 
business leaders were convinced 
that ours was a mature economy.

to end the depression, the Na- 
tional Recovery Administration 
and the Works Progress Adminis- 
tration. The N.R.A., on the as- 
sumption that expensive and ex- 
treme competition caused the 
depression, proposed that busi- 
rtess and labor get together and 
draw up codes of good practice. 
However, these codes had to be 
passed through legal channels be- 
fore being approved, and general- 
ly came out slanted for govern- 
ment control. 

Flanders hoped that Kennedy 
would not try to evoke the 
Roosevelt image in reviving un- 
employment The view was ex- 
pressed that it took a war to end 

the unemployment of Roosevelt's 

Finally, Flanders believed that 
we are not in danger of a crash 
today, but rather of a chronic 
slowing down. The reason for this 
would be improved production. 
Ideally the increased returns for 
increased efficiency should be 
divided in three ways. The first 
should be increased wages to the 
workers, the second should be 
reduced prices of goods, and the 
third should be more money put 
back into business. However, we 
haven't been following this three 
point program. Most of the in- 
creased returns have been given 
to the wage-earner. It is up to 
the new administration to 
straighten out our economic 
situation, without the shadow of 
the R o s ev e 1 1 administration 
hanging over it. 

Again a question and answer 
period followed. One pertinent 
question was asked, that is, "If 
Roosevelt was a failure, why was 
he so popular?" Flanders an- 
swered that he projected the 
image of a man concerned for 
the common man. Many other 
questions were asked concerning 
the candidates and their stand on 
domestic problems. Hie sestioli 
ended at 5:80.

At The State House: 

Capital Outlay Program 
Delays House And Senate 

One of the major hitches to an 
early prorofiration is money. For 
example the House ae^t to the 
Senate a capital outlay program 
totalling $49 million, as compared 
wth the $56 million recommended 
by the Governor and the $23.9 
million recommended by the 
House committee on ways and 

Bank night in the House, as 
one Republican member described 
the session at whkih the lower 
branch more than doubled the 
capital outlay, saw everybody 
rolling logs for everybody. It was 
an excellent example of the 
theory that, if you scratch my 
back, I'll scratch yours. 

It was precipitated by the 
majority floor leader, Rep. Cor- 
nelius F. Kienian of Lowell, who, 
in two motions adopted without 
difficulty, added million* to the 
capital outlay for two Lowell 

educational institutions. 

The capital outlay is now be- 
fore the Senate committee on 
ways and means which takes a 
slightly different attitude. Sen. 
William D. Fleming (D- Worces- 
ter), the chairman, has main- 
tained publicly, that he will not 
approve any capital outlay pro- 
gram until financing has been 

With a bond issue of $49 mil- 
lion, the financing alone takes 
money. And a bond issue requires 
a two-thirds vote in each branch 
at the enactment stage. 

Current revenue cannot fi- 
nance such expenditures as would 
be required, for example, to build 
just one building at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

The Commonwealth can borrow 
money at a low rate of interest,

£. W. White 
To Speak On 
British Arts 

Eric W. White, Assistant Sec- 
retary General of the Arts Coun- 
cil of Great Britain will talk on 
"Government Assistance to the 
Arts in Great Britain" on Tues- 
day, October 11, at 4 p.m. in the 
Commonwealth Room of the SU. 

Eric White has for the past 
six years served as one of the key 
officials of the Arts Council, 
which is the independent admin- 
istrative body which administers 
th? major portio/. jf the finan- 
cial assistance extended to the 
arts in Britain by the central 
government. He is thoroughly 
familiar with the entire range of 
Arts Council activitie.«? in the 
fields of art, music, the theatre, 
opera and literature. His special 
interests relate to the Council's 
work pertaining to arts festivals, 
arts associations, poetry and 
opera. White is Secretary of the 
Poetry Book Society and is edit- 
ing a collection of modern Brit- 
ish poems which will be pub- 
lished in the near future. 

The British system of central 
and local government patronage 
and support of the arts should be 
of interest to Americans who are 
studying and teaching in a 
variety of academic disciplines. 
Britain has exported the Arts 
Council concept to a number of 
her dominions, including Canada, 
New Zealand, Australia,' Ghana, 

White is appearing in the U.S. 
under State Department auspi- 
cies and will lecture at Yale and 
Harvard Universities, as well as 
at the University of Massachu-

finalists. President Lederle made 
his first on campus appearance 
and bestowed the symbolic crown 
on Miss Lawson. 

Bom Small, as Metawampee, 
carried the bonfire torch across 
the SU lawn to touch off the 
huge bonfire. 

Second and third place winners 
in the women's dorms were Ham- 
lin and Knowlton. Baker and 
Butterfield respectively, took 
.second and third places in the 
men's dorms. GCA and KAT fol- 
lowed in second and third places 
in the Sororities. Sig Ep and 
TKE were second and third in 
the Fraternities. 

Roz Zacher, Bette Broberg, 
Carol Madison, and Debbie Read 
were members of the Homecom- 
ing Queen's Court. Miss Read was 
unable to attend the presentation 
of the crown. Miss Read's father 
was one of the victims aboard 
the ill-fated Northeast Electra 
which crashed last Tuesday in 
the waters off Winthrop Bay. 

Selection Of Junior 
Justice In November 


Editor's note: This is the first 
half of a two-part series review- 
ing the organization of the Men's 
Judiciary. The second half will 
appear in Friday's COLLEGIAN. 
Men's Judiciary, the male un- 
dergraduates* student court, is 
currently in need of a new mem- 
ber. In November a member of 
the junior class will be selected 
to fill the post. According to 
the By-Laws of the UMass Con- 
stitution, he will be selected by 
the Justices and an equal num- 
ber of male Senators from the 
Men's Affairs Committee. 

On the day prescribed each 
candidate will'be interviewed and 
given an intensive questioning on 
his knowledge of the Constitu- 
tion and his views on various 
theoretical, ethical problems that 
arise here on the campus. The 
Justices, under the chairmanship 
of Mike Kleinerman '61, deliber- 
ating with the Senators elimin- 
ate the candidates until finally 
one is chosen. "A man is elected 
to Men's Judiciary" says Klein- 
erman "for what he stands, not 
who stands for him." 

Collegian - Sponsored Class 
In Journalism To Start Tues. 

A Co/^«^ian-sponsored class in 
reporting and news writing will 
begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, 
in the SU. 

The class, supported by Stu- 
dent Activities Tax Fund, will be 
taught by Phillip Keohane. chief 
of the United Press Internation- 
al Bureau in Springfield. He 
holds a Master's degree in jour- 
nalism from Columbia Univer- 
sity. This is his third year as 
instructor in the c\f»h. 

The class will consist of 12 lec- 
tures over a six-week period, and 

will include writing assignments 
as well as lectures. They will be 
taught at 4 p.m. every Tuesday 
and Thursday. 

While there is no obligation 
for those attending the classes to 
join the Collegian, freshmen 
members of the newspaper are 
strongly urged to attend the 
classes. English majors in par- 
ticular are encouraged to attend 
the classes according to Profes- 
sor Maxwell Goldberg, head of 
the English department. 

The Men's Judiciary was or- 
ganized in the Fall of 1948 when 
the groups governing Men and 
Women combined to form the 
Joint Student Government Asso- 
ciation. For the first five years, 
a more or less inactive group 
handled only parking violations. 
This unsatisfactory arrangement 
was revamped in '52-'63 with a 
rethinking of the area of juris- 
diction. The dropping of "tick- 
ets" allowed Men's Judiciary to 
pick up cases of general miscon- 
duct and their scope and strength 
has increased continuously to a 
point where it is now more pow- 
erful than those of Syracuse, 
Delaware, and all of the Van-Con 
.schools in the types of serious 
cases handled. The power of our 
Men's Judiciary and Student Sen- 
ate was emphasized at a cbnfer- 
ence of these schools last Spring. 

According to Dave Clancey 
'63, the only sophomore member 
of the board, "The role of Men's 
Judiciary is to serve as an in- 
termediary between the Dean of 
Men and the students . . " Each 
week the Chief Justice discusses 
all the current cases with the 
Dean, without mentioning names, 
to decide where they will be 
handled. Men's Judiciary can 
get a variety of cases excluding 
morals and cheating. A good 
number ot the cases are viola- 
tions of our past president's 
memo on liquor. "Because we are 
students and realize the prob- 
lems of students," states Joe 
Harrington '61, "we are more im- 
partial than the' faculty and can 
therefore do a better job." 

The way the Men's Judiciary 
handles a case and their require- 
ments for membership will be 
discussed in the next issue. 



The President Promises 

• • 

Last week in an early morning interview with the 
University President, John VV. Lederle, three members of 
the Collefjian staff were able to discuss the plans, problems, 
and policy confronting the man in the top post on campus. 

As the president indicated during his remarks at the 
rally Friday night, he wants to rest his feet comfortably on 
University soil before undertaking any major administra- 
tive-legislative business. He is planning to feel his way 
around for some time . . . just to find out what makes the 
University tick (money) and what our problems are. 

In disclosing his outlook and attitude concerning a 
good student body relationship. President Lederle certainly 
deserves and gets from us a pat on the back. His state- 
ment, that he would be the "most accessible" president the 
University has ever had, received a grand cheer from the 
students at the Homecoming rally. During the Collegian 
interview the president had commented that he would be 
opposed to any intervention in student ideas and would 
hesitate before invading any of our rights and responsibil- 
ities as students. He continued: "I may think an act or 
statement is foolish on your part, but I will fight for your 
right to say what you think." 

Although President Lederle has not yet been able to 
make many or any solid formal statements, we have learned 
that there will not be any radical changes made here at 
UMass — at least for the moment. Whether this should or 
should not be taken apprehensively remains to be seen. 



In a world where utilitarianism is one of the most emphasized 
approaches to daily living, it is difficult to realize that usefulness, 
economy, or practicality should not be good in themselves. They are 
but dispensers of the mechanical and routine tasks of life so that 
man may concentrate on what is primarily significant — namely, him- 
self. In his desire for the "better things of life" he has frequently 
lost sight of the ends aiui has become unnecessarily absorbed with 
the means. This is popularly labelled materialism. Yet, he thinks 
he is still gaining those "better things of life" when he is in reality 
only acquiring things which are not, ultimately, of life in the broad 
sense, but of his ovm narrow invention. Unhappily, this distorted 
approach to realizing what is intrinsically good has seeped into the 
academic world where mechanization threatens. 

As almost universally stated by students, the aim of going to 
college is to "get an education." Here again, people suppose they are 
only being exposed to the means, the tools of their objective. Knowl- 
edge unrelated to living experience is meaningless. What is popularly 
termed "education" is meaningless in itself. Before students have 
"got" something, they must give something. This second element is 
appreciation. Another word might be wonder. It should precede or 
accompany cognition, for it is an understanding of the heart. It is 
good to know the nervous system of the frog only if we experience, 
say, a perception of intentive design, universality or some such qual- 
ity that appeals to us as humans, as creatures who sense the curios- 
ity of existence. No knowledge can ever be good for us unless it is as- 
similated in this fashion. Otherwise, what is called "learning" becomes 
a kind of mental residue that can, at best, furnish chit-chat for cock- 
tail parties. To be truly educated is to be truly aware — and awareness 
is more than factual knowledge — it is also a sense of the magical, of 
the intriguing. 

"Education" must also color our perspective, our attitudes, our 
philos( phy if you will. In the end, knowledge is valuable insofar as 
it enhances our private plane of experience — gives the richness of 
humor, pathos, and beauty to existence. With every plane of exper- 
ience there is a singular outlook, a window of one's consciousness. This 
is, in part, the kind of awareness I mean. It is individual and subjec- 
tive. To tne objection that the intellect finds truth to be good in itself, 
that there need be no emotive, personal aspect involved, I answer 
after Keats: "Truth is Beauty." What is true is innately good to us 
because it strikes a deep chord. Who shall .say what that chord is? 
We can only know that there is something both refreshing and en- 
chanting a' It the discovery of a truth. It is a missing piece out of 
the puzzle of our general understanding. It entrances us because we 
have made it our own and it will be a part of us, somehow, forever. 

Therefore, let us not come ambitiously to the classroom with the 
paltry aim of a distant lucrative career, with the conceited one of 
prestige, or with the pathetic one of bored conformity. Instead, if we 
are human enough, we .shall find .something both clarifying and sensi- 
tizing about knowledge: there is clarification of that private window 
of consciousness and sensitizing to the variety and color of living. 
And, if we are blessed, we might even be inspired.

I'm telling you they're mongrelizing our scho- 
lasticism. It's become increasingly evident in recent 
weeks that there is a growing animosity between the 
residents and the "commutes." Real bitterness! Now, 
if we knew their political and religious beliefs we'd 
have reason to hate them. . . 

They descend upon the campus everyday, re- 
.sombling the Mongol hordes. Commuters nothing . . . 
they ought to be called the Huns. This is no exag- 
geration. They even refer to their senior senator 
Don Croteau as "Attila." The difficult part about it 
is that he takes it seriously. During the Olympics 
last month, everytime someone near Don mentioned 
Rome, he'd shake his head despondently and say, 
"I knew I shouldn't have let Loo talk me out of it." 
It wasn't too bad when all we had were the com- 
mutes from Springfield, 'Hamp, and Granby(schist ?). 
We could spot them quite easily enough . . . usually 
driving a Stop & Shop truck or wearing one of 
those green smocks they use at the checkout counter 
in Kresge's. But in the last few years, with the in- 
dustrialization of Springfield (thanks to Tommy 
O'Connor) it's almost impossible to tell what a 
commuter looks like by his wearing apparel. Sweat 
shirt, continental cut, madras jacket . . . there is 
no standardized dress for selling narcotics. 

I mentioned Tommy O'Connor a minute ago. For 
those of you interested in Tom (although O'Connor 
fans would prefer the latter phrase read — "for 
those of you interested in the .salvation of man- 
kind"), he will appear on our campus this Sunday. 
The rally is expected to be pretty radical in so far 
as O'Connor fans are paralleled with those of the 
late Jimmy Dean . . . you know, the type who would 
have given up their young, innocent and promising 

lives and taken his place behind the wheel that day 
if only he could have been spared, etc. O'Connor 
himself, it's rumored, has been to see "Rebel Without 
A Cause" 247 times. But we're digressing . . . 

There are those on this campus who feel this ani- 
mosity so strongly that they want the "commutes" 
to be isolated on the island in the middle of the 
campus pond and name this segregated terrain 
Molokai. Then when the Commuters found it neces- 
sary to visit the bookstore, a Maroon Key and 
Scroll would be assigned to walk in advance of 
them, ringing a bell as a warning of their presence, 
crying "Unclean . . . unclean . . ." 

The weird part about it is that these people have 
a morbid fear of being feral and, knowing of their 
own intellectual isolation, experience a moral and 
physical anguish whenever they see a new dormitory 
go up. There was this one returning student, who 
upon his arrival on campus in September, fell to his 
knees weeping in front of Hills North and angrily 
threw his Esso credit card into the dust. Later, as 
he was helped to his feet by a passing housemother 
(just coming back from Dickinson Hall and her 
ROTC course — German Shepherd Grooming 51), he 
consoled him.self with the words, "I didn't want to 
live there anyway; you probably catch athlete's foot 
with that many guys using one shower." 

And are they cliquish! This "clan" would put 
Frank, Dean, and Sammy to shame. No mixing with 
the outside world is allowed. If a "commute" is dis- 
covered dating a dorm girl, he is immediately 
labeled an apostate. But the cardinal sin — if he's 
found sitting in the Hatch or using the library, his 
home town's hook is usually taken off the riders 
bulletin board. The worst! 


To the P.M.S.: 

Sir, you are of course quite right in asserting that Chiang Kai-Shek did indeed fight against the 
Japanese during W.W.II. My principal point of contention, however, was that from 1931-1937 he contin- 
ued his fight against the communists instead of confronting the Japanese. 

However, sir, when I referred to the "united front" policy which occurred in Moscow, I explicitly 
stated that this was in 1935. Keep this in mind, sir: 1935. To pursue this further, sir, I will now quote 

"It was the communists, Mike, who did not truly fight the Japanese in W.W.II. 'Moscow 
policy' always dicates communist attempts to seize control of a people weakened by defense 
against exterior forces or by internal revolution. Here they were successful." 

Bearing in mind the previous quote, sir, and especially your phrase, "Moscow policy," and in the 
last sentence, the word "here" (obviously referring to the Chinese Revolution), I present to you the fol- 
lowing facts: 

When General Marshall returned to the United States he issued, in January of 1947, his well-known 
report to the President on the troubles of China in which he stated that there was no "significant aid" 
from Russia to the Chinese Communists. That he said this, sir, is historical fact. 

It i.s, however, of further significance that you connected the phrase, "Moscow policy" with the Chin- 
ese Revolution, for as you know, in 1947, the Truman Doctrine was i.ssued. One could say that this doc- 
trine was more or a "carte blanche" to any country which claimed to be under pressure either from 
Russia, or its own communists. What I am getting at is this, sir: Surely, one who fights against commu- 
nists is not necessarily worthy of our support merely because of this. Indeed, the suppression of the left 
has been carried on by corrupt men such as Mr. Rhee and Generalissimo Franco. Our state department 
has supported these men and look at the results: 

1. Election riots in South Korea with a subsequent nose dive of our prestige in Asia. 

2. Condemnation of Franco by almost all the respectable powers of the world. 

3. Questionable militar>' trials in Formosa with the ever present possibility of out and out scandal. 
Indeed, sir, Chiang was a revered war leader of China, indeed, all of China. It is also possible that 

General Marshall could have eventually effected a reconciliation based on the Chinese moderates, whom 
Marshall called a "splendid group of men." It is unfortunate that after the initial unsuccessful confron- 
tation of General Marshall and the feuding Chinese, the Truman Doctrine proved too tempting and the 
Kuomintang, reas.sured by U.S. policy, carried on with the civil war. Unfortunately, as you know, they and sub.sequently moved to our 51st state, Formosa. 

However, sir, there is another thing in which I believe you to be ab.solutely correct. That is when you 
refer to the communists having killed 20 million people in consolidating their revolution — although, I 
believe that Mr. Luce and Mr. Hearst would disagree with you on this.

Student Practice 
Education Majors 


by PATRICIA STEC '64, ColleRian Staflf Reporter 

According to Albert W. Purvis, 
Dean of Education at UMass, 
there will be 45 elementary and 
56 secondary student teachers 
placed in schools throughout 
Massachusetts beginning Nov. 1. 

These student to^^chers are tak- 
ing an education course known 
as the "block". This consists of 
eight weeks of classes on campus 
and eight week of student-teach- 
ing in either elementary or high 
schools in the surrounding area. 
Because only 12 credits are given 
for the education block, some 
students have one or more cours- 
es on campus. Dean Purvis does 
not advise this. "There is too 
much work involved in preparing 
for these classes and correcting 
papers. A student should take 
six courses in one semester rather 
than one during the education 
block," he stated. 

To place UMass students in 
elementary and high schools, a 
staff member of the education de- 
partment interviews superintend- 
ents and principals of various 
schools to find out where student 

t(>athing would be desired and 
appreciated. Purvis said that the 
students received an encouraging 
reception from most schools. The 
reason for this, he claimed, is 
that "school administrators and 
teachers are beginning to look 
at student teaching as a pro- 
fesional duty and most find it 
is very helpful to them." 

Once the students have been 
l)laced, they attend a conference 
with the principal and teacher, 
who brief them on duties and 
other pertinent information. 
Gradually he takes on the teach- 
er's job, and by the end of eight 
weeks he is carrying a full pro- 

William J. Beucler, who trans- 
ferred to UMass this fall, is the 
director of student teaching. He 
lists two aims of the student- 
teacher program. First, the stu- 
dent has the opportunity to learn 
to put across ideas to elementary 
and high school pupils. Also, the 
eight weeks are a trial period 
during which the student teach- 
er finds out whether or not teach- 
ing is the job suited for him.

Aggie School 
Begins Chats 
With Faculty 

John Blackmore, head of the 
Department of Agricultural Eco- 
nomics at Stockbridge College, 
led the discussion at the first of 
a series of "Fireside Chats", put 
on by the Alpha Zeta Society, 
on Thursday evening in the Co- 
lonial Lounge of the Student 

The purpose of the discussion 
groups, as stated by Blackmore, 
is "primarily an opportunity for 
bull sessions on career opportun- 
ities in agriculture." 

This week the business side of 
agriculture was considered. 
Among some of the personal 
problems discussed and tenta- 
tively worked out were concerned 
with course requirements, foreign 
job oppportunities as well as local 
opportunities, and the difference 
in job opportunities for gradu- 
ating students with a Bachelor 
of Science degree and those with 
a Bachelor of Vocational Agricul- 
ture degree. 

In discussing the cycle of many 
Stockbridge students, Blackmore 
pointed out that many come from 
agricultural high schools without 
the requirements to be enrolled in 
the University, so they go to 
Stockbridge for a year. Those 
who do well are allowed to apply 
to the University if they are able 
to pass the basic requirements 

In comparing University stu- 
dents with the Stockbridge stu- 
dents, the discussion leader said

Redmen Shocked By UConn, 31-0; Win Streak Ends 

Penalties, Fumbles Ruin UMass 
Chance For YanCon Supremacy 

The University of Connecticut 
unleashed a bruising second half 
running attack, and crushed 
Massachusetts, 31-0, before a 
homecoming crowd of 11,000 
which jammed Alumni Field 

The Redmen had been riding 
the crest of a five game winning 
streak while the Huskies had 
been winless in both outings this 


The Huskies started their 
touchdown parade late in the 
first quarter when Bill Minnerly 
capped a 49 yard drive by plung- 
ing to paydirt from four yards 
out. Joe Klimas spilt the uprights 
to up the count to 7-0. 

Throughout the remainder of 
the half the Redmen played on 
equal terms with their YC rivals. 
The UM gridders put together 

by W. JOHN LENNON '61 
two short scoring drives, but both 
were thwarted by penalties. 

Connecticut ran the count to 
10-0 seconds before the half end- 
ed. After Tony Constantine re- 
covered Sam Lussier's fumble on 
the UM 21, UConn tried one 
running play to center the ball 
directly in front of the goal 
posts. With seconds remaining 
Klimas dropped back to the 26 
and toed the pigskin between the 
uprights for the three pointer. 

During the first half the Red- 
men rolled up 126 yards on the 
ground while holding the Husk- 
ies to 102. Following intermis- 
sion, however, the Huskies ripped 
the Redmen line apart. 


Midway through the third 
quarter John Contoulis blocked 
John McCormick's fourth down 
punt and UConn recovered on the 

UM 16. Three plays later Pete 
Barbarito slashed off ten yards 
and plunged into the end zone to 
run the score to 16-0. 

Now the Huskies refused to be 
stopped. Shortly before the per- 
iod ended UConn was back 
knocking on the goal line door. 
After UConn recovered a Mike 
Salem fumble on the Redmen 29, 
the Huskies drove to the three. 
Gerry White climaxed the drive 
by plunging over from there. 
Tom Kopp's pass found Tony 
Pignatello for two more points 
and the spread was 24-0. 

Gerry White, who replaced 
Barbarito in the second half, per- 
sonally led the final UConn 
march. The sophomore work 
horse constantly bulled his way 
through the center of the UM 
line and then climaxed a 94 yard 
drive by romping over from ten

This picture typifies the feelings of I Mass supporters during the last half of Saturday's Home- 
coming game against Connecticut. A record crowd of 10.500 was on hand to watch the Redmen 
go down to defeat at the hands of the Huskies. Part of the throng can be seen beginning to leave 
the packed Alumni Field, when it appeared thai all hope of victory was lost. 

Soccer Team Downed By 
Huskies, 4-0; Trinity Next 

Saturday morning the UMass 
soccer team fared little better 
than their big brother football 
team in the afternoon, as the 
hooters went down to a 4-0 de- 
feat at the hands of UConn. The 
men from Connecticut ruined the 
Redmen's hopes for a successful 
Homecoming debut, scoring be- 
fore five minutes had elapsed in 
the first period. 

Myron Krasij executed a pret- 
ty crosskick, while moving to his 
right he shot the ball into the 
far left comer of the net beyond 
the outstretched arms of the 
helpless goalie. 

After controlling the action 


throughout most of the first per- 
iod, UConn starteil the second 
frame in virtually the same fash- 
ion. But with about five minutes 
gone UMass decidtni to do some- 
thing about the situation. 

It all started when Andy Psil- 
ackus, co-captain for UMass 
sent a shot towards the goal that 
missed by inches of catching the 
corner. This seemed to fire the 
Rodmen up as they pressed th»' 
UConn goal for the rest of the 

After the half UConn came out 
loaded for bear. UMass goalie 
Bob Slagle had to make several 
good stops. Midway through the 
quarter UMass had their best 

UMass halfback ROGER BENVENUTI (30) bolts through the 
Husky line as end ED FORBISH (80) lends support. The Red- 
men were able to gain only 43 yards on the ground during the 
second half o.f Saturday's game. 

defense, with a clear shot on 
goal. He shot the ball too soon, 
however, and the goalie was able 
to make an easy stop of it. 
UConn tallie<i in the final two 
minutes of the periml. Roger 
Steeves, left inner, kicked the 
ball and appeared to have .scored 
only to have it hit the crossbar 
and bound over. Seconds later, 
not to be denied, Steeves u.sed 
his head this time, and had much 
better success as he headed the 
ball in, on a corner kick assist 
from Bob Curran. This made the 
score 2-0. 

UConn scored twice in the 
final quarter. The last goal was 
/ a real rarity in soccer as one of 
their fullbacks got the goal. Tony 
Attanasio, a scrapping fullback, 
j had come way up as the UConn's 
I were pressing. He picked the ball 
, up from 25-80 feet out and sont 
a beautiful .shot whizzing towards 
the UMass goal. The ball arched 
up and over the goalie into the 
far rii;ht corner, an impossilile 
.hot to stop. This rounded out the 
scoring for the day as UConn 
wcnit hnme with a 4-0 victory 
under their belts. 

.Although the men from Con- 
ne.'-ticut did score four goals, if it 
hadn't been for the superb work 
of goali.' Bob Slagle the score 
would have been astronomical. 
Slagle made a total of 20 saves, 
several Imrdering on the sensa- 
tional side, while UConn goalie

Theory Or Fact Of 
Evolution Discussed 

Coileffian Staff Reporter 
Rev. William A. Wallace, CD., These systems 
Associate Professor of Natural 
Philosophy, raised the question at 
the Newman Club meeting Tues- 

day evening, "Is evolution a 
theory or a fact?" He spoke first 
of the current scientific facts 
which support evolution and then 
criticized the current non-Catho- 
lic views of many scientists. 

Rev. Wallace said the evolution 
embraced three questions: the 
origin of the universe, the origin 
of life on earth, and the origin 
if man. 

Besides these (juestions, there 
are theories often involving spec- 
ulations which may be foreign to 
Catholic belief. He mentioned 
three: the materialistic philoso- 
phy found in Julian Huxley's 
writings on evolution; the pan- 
theism of Hegel, and the positiv- 
istic philosophy which holds that 
evolution is a fact, not a theorv. 

recognize that 
only matter is the existing 
"stuff" of the universe. Catholics 
are taught that "man is a being 
composed of body and soul." This 
belief holds that the universe is 
«"omposed of matter and a spirit 
which created the material uni- 
verse. The soul, or spirit, is an 
immaterial essence which is im- 
mortal and which is defined as 
the sum total of the processes in 
the brain; i.e. the intellect, the 
will, and the memory. Rev. Wal- 
lace throughout his speech 
stressed the points that the uni- 
verse exhibits intelligence and 
great order in its structure, that 
science is based on permanent 
laws and cycles, and that the ma- 
terial world is not subjejct to 
sudden change. He said, "If the 
universe changed tomorrow, 
there would be no science."

A.S.LS. Seeks U.S. 
Job Accommodations 

by JAMES R. REIN HOLD '61. News Associate 

The American Student Infor- 
mation Service of Frankfurt, 
Germany, which has arranged 
summer employment abroad for 
Ajnerican college students during 
theii summer vacations, is now 
inaugurating an exchange pro- 
gram to bring P^uropean stu- 
dents here. 

The A. S. I. S. is currently 
seeking potential job opportun- 
ties and living, accommodations 
for European students during the 
1961 vacation months. Persons 
knowing of job openings for non- 
permanent, non-skilled labor, or 
knowing of individuals wishing 
to accommodate the young people 
in their homes are asked to ad- tm* A SIS. 

The organization is currently 
planning its fourth year of oper- 
ations in biinging American stu- 
dents abroad. The A. S. I. S. pro- 
grams include job placement at 
farm, hotel, construction, hospi- 

Even though modern electronic computers work at al- 
most unbelievable speeds, the scientist is way ahead 
of them. 

Put quite simply, scientists have been thinking up com- 
plex problems faster than even the fastest computers 
could handle them. To close this gap. IBM created 
STRETCH, the world's fastest, most powerful computer. 
The first STRETCH system will go to the AEC at Los 
Alamos to aid in nuclear reactor design. This goliath can 
do a million additions or subtractions a second. It can 
"read" the equivalent of four million characters per 
minute from magnetic tape. It can print the equivalent 
of three good-sized novels every hour. It can perform 
all these operations simultaneously, and if necessary 


pause midway in the problem and tackle a more Im- 
portant one. 

Creating such tools and putting them to work for sci- 
ence—or for business, industry, or government — is ex- 
citing, important work. It calls for talents and skills of 
every kind, from liberal arts to Boolean algebra to astro- 

So whatever your particular talents and skills, there 
may be just the kind of job at IBM you've always wanted. 
The IBM representative will be visiting your campus this 
year. Why not ask him about it? Your placement office 
can make an appointment. For further information about

Woehrlin Not Alarmed ^^l^t^er Keturns To Dedicate 

New UMass Language Labs 

By Faculty Turnover 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

William Fredrick Woehrlin, a UMass instructor in history, re- 
ceived his B.A. from Amherst Collcfjc and his M.A. from Harvard. 
He also attended the university at Marburg in Germany and is cur- 
rently studying for his doctorate. 

Not Alarmed at Turnover 
When asked if he was alarmed at the seemingly high UMass fac- 
ulty turnover rate, Woehrlin replied that high faculty turnover is 
standard on all large university campuses. He explained that educa- 
tors commonly rise in the academic world only by constant moves and 
that the educator's best bargaining power is his mobility. 

The University, he said, is in a difficult age of growth and is 
faced with an overwhelming lack of facilities. "The most acute need 
at present is that of an adequate library." Woehrlin suggested that 
many educators may have left UMass because they felt they couldn't 
teach on the level which they thought they should. This could have 
been because of the lack of proper library books in large enough 

He explained that this libi-ary situation exists partially because 
of the antiquated faculty book purchase system. In the history de- 
partment, for example, each instructor is given control of twenty dol- 
lars per course per semester. With this money, the instructor may pur- 
chase books for the library that refer to his course. In most cases, this 
allotment is too small to purchase the many needed reference books. 
Therefore the library has inadequate reference facilities in specific 

Advocates Improvement of Attitude 

"American college campuses are not world renowned for their in- 
tellectual atmosphere," Woehrlin commented. The first thing that 
UMass students should strive for in this field is a general improve- 
ment of campus atmosphere, making honest intellectual pursuit 
honorable. Another means by which our atmosphere would be 
strengthened is by the development of stronger student-faculty-ad- 
ministration association. 

"I feel," he said, "that the undergraduate body has widely 
separated abilities and many students have never been mentally chal- 
langed. Our future emphasis at UMass should be to challenge all stu- 

When asked if UMass is a 'diploma mill' he replied that all col- 
leges are. "This is because not enough students become so excited in 
knowledge for its own sake that they want to delve deeper into a sub- 
ject on their own accord." 

Former UMass president Jean 
Paul Mather and his successor 
President John Lederle will be 
the featured speakers at the ded- 
ication of the new language 
laboratories Wednesday, October 
19 at 8:00 P.M., in Bartlett Audi- 
torium. Following the ceremonies 
in the auditorium, speakers, 
guests, and members of the Ger- 
man and Romance Languages De- 
partments will inspect the Audio- 
visual resources and the wired- 
for-sound classrooms. At this 
time a demonstration of these 
facilities will take place.

New Danish Quartet 
Appears Tues. Night 

Appearing in the second of a 
series of concerts Tuesday at 
eight in Bowker Auditorium will 
be the New Danish Quartet. 

In its first tour of the United 
States this year, this outstand- 
ing string ensemble made its 
debut in Copenhagen in 1952. 
Since that time it has played in 
all the major mu.sic centers of 
Europe, including London, Kdin- 
burgh, Antwerp, Munich, Berlin, 
Milan and Venice. 

Following the concert, thoro 

will be an informal reception for 
the Quartet in the Colonial 
Lounge of the Student Union. At 
this reception, there will be an 
opportunity to meet these fine 
musicians personally. Coffee or 
punch will be served. Out of fair- 
ness to the performers, the Con- 
cert Association requests that no 
autographs be asked for at the 

General admission will be ob- 
tained by either a series ticket or

Confidence Is 
An Essential 
For Judiciary 

and ALLAN COHEN '63 

Kditors note: This is the sec- 
oyid half of a two-part series re- 
viewing the organization of the 
Men's Judiciary. 

When a student comes before 
the Men's Judiciary, he is ques- 
tioned on the offense and his 
general character. The Justices 
do not act as investigators for 
the offenders usually admit their 
faults. When the board feels that 
it has a complete knowledge of 
the case and the individual in- 
volved they act upon it, inform 
the student of its recommenda- 
tions and make these recommen- 
dations to the Dean. As Robert S. 
Hopkins, Jr., Dean of Men, says, 
"The Men's Judiciary is as good 
as any in the country. They have 
an informal formality which is 
good. It is not a legal body but 
they do think out each case, de- 
liberating at great length, giv- 
ing complete consideration to the 
fact that each case is distinct, 
and make their recommendations 
to this office." The Dean has not 
reversed a decision in the last 
four years. "Our problem" feels 
Harrington "is that we are be- 
hind the '8' ball, for some stu- 
dents think we are trying to hang 
them. We try to do the best for 
the in<livi(lual person." 

When asked about extracurri- 
cular activities and requiremen' 
for membership, Klienerman 
stated "I believe that any situa- 
tion in which one either leads o- 
follows in a group activity can- 
not help but benefit him in ui 
derstanding problems which arise. 
They are not neces.^iary for mem- 
bership, for at least three men 
on the board had no other ac- 
tivity at the time of election. I 
do feel", continued Klienerman, 
"the most important qualifica- 
tion is self-confidence." Defining 
this he said, "Confidence in the 
ability to advise, confidence to 
remain free from prejudices, and 
confidence in your own opinions." 
When a student aspiring mem- 
bersh^) stands before the electors 
and is asked to find flaws in or 
solve a case, he is watched for the 
ability to think and to take on 
(Continued on page 4)

the language labs. Mather returns 
to the scene of his former presi- 
dency in his new capacity as 
president of the American Col- 
lege Testing Service, a newly 
formed college admission testing 
group. Also present will be Pro- 
vost Shannon McCune, who was 
also instrumental in making 
UMass the recipient of the Car- 
negie grant which made the de- 
velopment of the labs possible. 
Members of the language de- 
partments are also expected to 

Those who wish to attend the 
dedication ceremonies may ob- 

tain invitation-admission cards in 
Bartlett 252. This, of course, in- 
cludes all interested students. 
Since- the capacity of both the 
classrooms and the auditorium 
is limited, the invitation-admis- 
sion card is necessary. A near 
capacity attendance is expected. 

When the labs will finally be 
operational is anyone's guess at 
present. Owing to the complex 
electronic and technologic facets 
of these facilities, delay has been 
unavoidable. However, progress 
is being made daily and the labs 
will be open to classes as soon as 
all obstacles have been overcome. 

Senate Holds Camera Bill; 
Makes $100 Appropriations 

After much deliberatioji and 
discussion, the Student Senate 
voted to send S4 to the Finance 
Committee. A result of a motion 
passe<l by the Senate Septem- 
ber 28, 1960, S4 would have al- 
lowed the Massachusetts Col- 
legian to purchase three cameras 
for the amount appropriated in- 
stead of two. Originally, the Col- 
legian asked for three cameras. 
The Senate appropriated money 
for two. However, after accept- 
ing bids the Collegian found that 
it could get a package deal for 
three cameras for exactly the 
same amount of money that the 
Senate appropriated. But in or- 
der to do this they needed the 
approval of the Senate. 

Sen. Donald Croteau explained 
the situation and moved that the 
Senate suspend the rules in order 
that they might vote right away 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

on such an important matter. 
The two-thirds majority needed to 
suspend the rules was easily 
achieved and it looked as if the 
bill would pass with no difficulty. 

But the bill suddenly ran into 
adamant opposition. President Pro 
Tempore Twohig left the rostrum 
in order to speak his opinion to 
the Senate. He argued that 
suspension of the rules was a 
serious thing and that the bill did 
not warrant such action. He rec- 
ommended that the bill be sent 
to the Finance Committee for 
further study as is usually done. 

After the vote, the bill was 
returned to the Finance Commit- 

The Senate appropriated $25 
for the purpose of securing Prof. 
Ernest C. Pollard of Yale Uni- 
versity as a speaker, and $75 to

On A Fifth Freedom 

During the course of several past issues of the Col- 
legian, the editorial page has presented a discussion and 
open debate on the Chinese Revolution and the United 
States' position and involvement with China, Formosa and 
the Mainland. The discussion has continued into this issue, 
and so perhaps some of you are now wondering what will 
be the outcome. We ask, in the hopes of bringing this dis- 
cussion and future discussions into focus: can there be a 
conclusion, an answer? Who is right? Is it the one who as- 
serts himself the most; who brings to his support the most 
quotations, the most excerpts? 

A generality might be explored. Throughout history 
we have been saturated with numerous analyses, criticisms, 
and interpretations. Almost anyone would agree that there 
are countless numbers of historians and writers producing 
prolifically; all of them, in effect, are imposing their own 
views on a vast array of data already in print. With all 
these interpretations, there will undoubtedly be many con- 
tradicting and negating many others. How will we finally 
come to the conclusion that this is so and that isn't? 

Up until now we, all of us, have not been obliged to 
accept any one opinion — that is, unless we have been pres- 
sured into it unbeknownst to ourselves. According to the 
Constitution (although the First Amendment has not stated 
so in black and white) we are supposedly allowed the free- 
dom to think. We are still maintaining this prerogative to 
think by using our own frames of references, whether they 
are limited or not. 

Many political commentators have written and com- 
mented nationally on the present American situation. They 
have cried out that we as a nation are on the decline. Many 
have seen and given consideration to the steady rise in the 
effective pressure groups trying, and succeeding in many 
cases, to assert their will. What point of view can we draw 
from this? It seems that discussion, opinions exposed in the 
open forum of the college press and in the "free" press na- 
tionally are a vital part of the uncoerced spirit . . . prevent- 
ing stagnation. 

More discussion and more interest in discussion and 
debate must continue. We would like to encourage both 
student and faculty to continue by adding their own ideas 
and opinions to the pot. The result might be just goulash, 
but it can also be good goulash.

Apathetic Lately? 

by Judy St. Jean 
The opportunities for students to participate in and 
view amateur theatre in the Amherst area are numerous; 
yet many are unaware or disinterested in the creative op- 
portunities which surround them. As students it is part of 
education to give of yourself in a significant way. We of 
the American society are conditioned to receive, not to give 
of ourselves. This isn't our fault entirely since we are con- 
ditioned with the drug-like effects of television which dif- 
fuse into the brain and lull it into inactivity. There is some- 
thing, however, which can be done about it — take advan- 
tage of the cultural outlets which are offered you. The 
Operetta Guild has planned a campus service to help bring 
college theatre into the price range of all students. Wednes- 
day October 19, at 8:15 in Bowker Aud. the Operetta Guild 
will present Thunder in the Hills, an original musical by 
UMass Alumni, in a special Student Night Production for 
the Students I All tickets are 75 cents, and the creativity 
and energy which this campus has to offer will be displayed 
for You. Don't ever let the words "Intellectual Apathy" 
cross your lips if you are not willing to partake of or just 
view the creative products of the undergraduate and grad- 
uate students of your campus! 

Unchanging History — Chinese Revolution 

by JAMES WEAVKK '60 (Graduate School) 


The Campus Religious Council announces that the an- 
nual blood drive will be extended until this Monday at 5 
P.M. due to the holiday Wednesday. All those over 21 have 
to do to give blood is to sign the form which is available at 
the Union lobby counter. Those under 21 will also need their 
parents' permission. Forms for this permission may be 
picked up at the lobby counter as well. 

The Bloodmobile will be on campus November 2 and 8. 
Last year over 500 pints of blood were given. Ironically, the 
number of girls giving blood was three to one over the men. 

By donating blood one is credited with the amount 
given so that if and when he needs blood he may obtain it 
at no charge from the Red Cross. Let's get out and fill the 
blood bank. Anyone from 18 to 59 is eligible. 

A quote from the book Democracy Versus Commun- 
ism by Dr. Kenneth Colegrove: 

"In 1927 the Kuomintang gained control of the 
Chinese government and set out on the hard task of 
trying to build a united democratic republic. But 
Chiang Kai-Shek and his followers had to spend most 
of their time and strength fighting two enemies: 
Communist guerrilla bands (established by Soviet 
Agent Michael Borodin) and the armies of the old 
war lords. This was the beginning of a long civil 
war. It was a three-cornered war — the Republic of 
China under Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek fighting 
the Communists on one side, and on the other the 
war lords who stubbornly held on to many provinces. 

"Japanese military leaders had long sought to 
control China; now they thought they saw their 
chance. In 1931 they invaded Manchuria. For the 
next fifteen years Chiang Kai-shek and his followers 
had to fight desperately to keep the invader from 
conquering all of China. Mao Tse-tung and his Com- 
munists held on to their base in North China. They 
gave half-hearted support to Chiang's fight against 
Japan. Actually, they were saving their strength to 
attack the Kuomintang later. 

"At the end of World War II, the Communists, 
with support from Soviet Russia, renewed the 
Chinese Civil War. Stalin had promised President 
Roosevelt and the Republic of China that he would 
give Chiang Kai-shek any weapons which the 
Japanese armies surrendered, but he broke his prom- 
ise. Instead, he handed over to Mao Tse-tung most 
of the huge armaments the Japanese surrendered in 
North China. This meant that the Chinese Com- 
munists in North China had better weapons than the 
war-weary armies of the Chinese Republic. After 
the war, leaders of other nations put pressure on 
Chiang Kai-shek to compromise with the Chinese 
Communists and take them into his government. 
Some observers who may have been friendly to the 
Chinese Reds even claimed that Mao and his party 
were not real Communists, but merely "agrarian 

"But Chiang knew better. He may have made 
mistakes, but years before he had learned one im- 
l)ortant fact — namely, that the Communists never 
enter a government except to destroy it. From 1945 
to 1946 there was an uneasy truce between Chiang 
and the Chinese Reds. The Communists constantly 
grew stronger. They refused to take part in a Na- 
tional Assembly to write a new constitution, so the 
Assembly went ahead without them, adopting a new 
constitution and electing Chiang President of the 
Republic of China. 

"Meanwhile Communist depredations broke out 
again. When American aid stopped, the Chinese Re- 
public proved unable to stop Mao's Soviet-supported 
armies. The Communists swept south. In 1949 the 
Chinese Republican government had to flee to the 
island of Formosa, which the Chinese call Taiwan 
(TI wahn). 

"China's 'Red Terror' followed the Russian pat- 
tern. Communist cadres (groups of trained agents) 
quickly spread through the provinces, encouraging 
peasants to seize the land. They organized rough 
courts or "people's tribunals" to try landowners. As 
a rule, the landlords were shot or beaten, or stoned 
to death. All schools came under Communist control 
and the courses were changed to give teachers and 
students intensive training in Communist thinking. 
Communist agents arrested and abused missionaries, 
priests, and nurses. From 1948 to 1956 the Com- 
munists killed, by reliable estimate, at least twenty 
million Chinese. By 1956 twenty-five million Chinese 
had been herded into slave labor camps." 

Close quote, Mike. Incidentally, that book wasn't 
the source of my 20 million figure. Taiwan under 
Chiang's government has recently announced eco- 
nomic self-sufficiency. The success of democratic 
processes here distresses the communists in the East 
as much as the success of the West Germany's Ber- 
lin does those in the West.

Healthy Criticism 

To the Editor: 

Just a quick note to voice our disapproval of the 
practice of printing articles, by students, that are 
calculated to be disrespectful to persons holding ad- 
ministrative or faculty positions. 

A prime example of this was the article by one 
Mike Palter in which the word "sir" was used to the 
extreme for obvious reasons, in reference to a per- 
son who through diligent effort has attained a posi- 
tion commanding the respect of all but the ill-bred 
"dregs" of our society. 

It's our opinion that future articles should be 
more of a constructive and less of a derogatory nat- 
ure. It's our contention that criticism is healthy 
when used properly, but degradation is never 
healthy. Altering the common cliche, the Mike 
Palters ought to "shape up or be shipped out" of 
the Collegian.

The Huns Invade 

To the Editor: 

I am heartened to see the potential strength of 
the commuters finally recognized. Heed the warn- 
ing stated by Jim Trelease in his last column. The 
commuters (636 strong) are consolidating their 
strength and are massing for attack. Four of our 
advance scouts are now holding office in the Student 
Senate. Their bi-weekly reports to headquarters 
give indications that the time will soon be ripe for 

Our war machine is of the finest Detroit has ever 
produced, and will not be thwarted by mere infantry. 
Beware the Student Union! Scott won't be able to

The Commons; Our Common Enemy 

To the Editor: 

There is no doubt about it. The Commons has de- 
clared war against the student body. 

Coffee is bravely snatched out of the hands of 
those preferring their coffee hot at the end of the 
meal. The Commons scores a double gain whenever 
anyone loses his meal ticket. Those who have lost 
their tickets are courageously repulsed until official 
orders (heh, heh, the office is closed) have been ob- 
tained. A victorious cheer goes up every time one of 
"the other side" returns part of his uneaten "ba- 
lanced diet" or walks away hungry. It has been 
rumored that some leniency may be granted to tick- 
et holders who have taken less than a certain num- 
ber of meals. Ah yes, great profits . . . oops, vic- 
tories are piling up on the side of the Commons. The 
day is coming when it will be able to fire employees 
for not fulfilling a quota of snatched-back food. 

Al Most Everybody 

We would like to thank everyone for their 
kindness and sympathy at a time when it was 
deeply appreciated.

O'Connor Lambasts Republicans' 'Status Q 

On the foreign front, on the 
position of public morality, and 
on the domestic basis the stutus 
quo maintained by Republicans is 
causing the stature and prestige 
of the United States to decline. 

This was the theme of a speech 
at the Student Union given by 
Thomas J. O'Connor, Mayor of 
Springfield and Democratic 

candidate for United States 
Senator from Massachusetts. 

Accusing the Republicans of be- 
ing satisfied that peace and 
prosperity is good enough, O'- 
Connor emphasized that "all is 
not well on the foreign front," 
citing the insult to President 
Eisenhower at the Paris confer- 
ence, the cancellation of his visit 


Ob Campos 


(AiUhor of "I Was a Teen-age Dwarf", "The Many 
■Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.) 


A great number of people have been asking me lately, "What 
is Homecoming?" but I have been so busy trying to find out 
why my new sports car leaks that I haven't had time to answer. 
I am now pleased to report that I finally discovered why my 
sports car leaks— I have been driving it upside down— and so 
I am ready today to turn my attention to Homecoming. 

Let's begin with definitions. Homecoming is a weekend when 
old grads return to their alma maters to watch a football game, 
visit old classrooms and dormitories and inspect each other's 
bald spots. 

The weekend is marked by the singing of old songs, the slap- 
ping of old backs and the frequent exchange of such greetings 
as "Harry, you old polecat!" or "Harry, you old porcupine!" 
or "Harry, you old rooster!" or "Harry, you old wombat!" 
As you can see, all old grads are named Harrj-. 

It is not just old grads who behave with such liveliness during 
Homecoming; the faculty also comports itself with unaccus- 
tomed animation. Teachers laugh and smile and pound backs 
and keep shouting "Harry, you old Airedale!" This unscholarly 
behavior is carried on in the hope that old grads, in a transport 
of bonhomie will endow a new geology building. * 

The old grads, however, are seldcgn seduced. By game time 
on Saturday their backs are so sore, their eyeballs so eroded, 
their extremities so frayed, that it is imixjssible to get a kind 
word out of them, much less a new geology building. 

#^>:^^ oii/M^ckiif^ 

Even the football game does not improve their tempers. 
"Hmmph !" they snort as the home team completes a 101-yard 
march to a touchdown. "Do you call that football? Why, back 
in my day, they'd have been over on the first down! By 
George, football was football in those days— not this namby- 
pamby girls' game that passes for football today! Take a look 
at that bench— 50 substitutes sitting there. Why, in my day, 
there were 1 1 men on a team and that was it. When you broke 
a leg, they slapped a piece of tape on it und you went right back 
in. Why, I remember the big game against State. Harry Siga- 
foos, our star quarterback, was killed in the third quarter. I 
mean, he was pronounced dead. But did that stop old Harry? 
Not on your tintype! Back in he went and kicked the winning 
drop kick m the last four seconds of play, dead aa he was. Back 
in my day, they played football, by George!" 

Everything, say the old grads, was better back in their day— 
everything except one. Even the most unreconstructed of the 
old grads has to admit that back in his day they never had a 
smoke like Marlboro -never a cigarette with such a lot to like 
—never a filter so easy drawing, a flavor so mild yet hearty, so 
abundant, so bountiful— never a choice of flip-top box or soft 

So old grads, young grads, and undergrads, why don't you 
settle back and have a full-flavored smoke? Try Marll>oro, the 
filtered cigarette with the unfiltered taste, and Homecoming 
will be a happy occasion and the sun will shine and the air will 
be filled with the murmur of wings and no man's hand will be 
raised against you.

tered companion cigarette— mild, fiavorful Philip Morris...

to Japan, the South American at- 
tack on Nixon, the situation in 
Cuba, and the recent near success 
of Red China's bid for recogni- 
tion in the United Nations. 

Quoting President Eisenhower's 
statement in 1952 that above all 
we must be guided by moral law 
and that government politics 
should be "as clean as a hound's 
tooth," O'Connor pointed out the 
corruption that was revealed in 
the Republican Administration. 
He detailed the operations of 
Sherman Adams and other "mem- 
bers of the hound's tooth society." 

Finally, "all is not well on a 
domestic basis." Millions of peo- 
ple, and people in every large 
city of the nation live in "rotten, 
vermininfested buildings," and 34 
million people receive a weekly 
income of less than $14. Further, 
we must admit to our senior citi- 
zens that we know they aren't 
getting proper medical care. 

Thousands of people are being 
denied adequate education, and if 
we maintain the sUitus quo Rus- 
sia will soon us in such 
fields as medicine, engineering, 
and science. 

In concluding, O'Connor said 
that Democratic policies will not 
necessarily mean more spending 
and might even mean less. Rather 
there should be a reallocation of 
funds in the national budget, for i 
example from agriculture to 
missiles. Also there should be a 
reallocation of the gross national 
product, in which at present the 
expenditures for agriculture are 
three times as much as total ex- 
penditures for higher education. | 

Innocent Interest 
Initiates Inquiry 

A chance subscription to a So- 
viet magazine by a junior busi- 
ness major has touched off a 
thorough investigation by the 
FBI into his background and 
standing as an American citizen. 

The junior said that the maga- 
zine to which he subscribed, 
USSR, is considered by the FBI 
to be subversive. 

The bizarre story began two 
years ago when, as a green frosh, 
he entered the library, where he 
picked up a copy of the New 
York Times. Unpatriotically, he 
read an article concerning the 
Soviet Exposition in Moscow, and 
then took a copy of USSR from 
the magazine rack. 

On the inside cover, he ob- 
served the following inscription: 
"The magazine, USSR, is pub- 
lished by reciprocal agreement 
between the governments of the 
U.S. and the Soviet Union. The 
agreement provides for the pub- 
lication and circulation of the 
magazine USSR in the U.S. and 
the magazine Amerika in the So- 
viet Union." 

It was an interesting and 
ostensibly innocuous magazine. 
Glancing through its pages, he 
came across an editorial concern- 
ing the Soviet Exposition. He 

compared the two articles and 
seemed amused by the factual 
and direct account given by the 
Times and the propagandistlc 
view presented in the USSR.

Campus Fire Department 
Features Modern Techniques 

by ROGER CRUFF '64, Collegian Staff Reporter 

The campus fire department, may leave classes 
now an integral part of life at 
the university, serves not only as 
a diversion from the heat of aca- 
demic life for its members, but 
also as fine experience in modern 
firefighting techniques. Although 
few of the members will prob- 
ably make this field their future 
vocation, it enables some to con- 
tinue their activities which they 
started in high school and others 
a chance to become acquainted 
with the job that nearly every 
young boy coverts. 

The department is relatively 
new on campus and dates from 
the early fifties when President 
Mather signed the charter. Paul 
Ro.senberg '61, is the current 
Chief and is only the fourth to 
hold this position. Malcolm Sama, 
'62, serves as Deputy, assists the 
Chief, and is next in line to as- 
sume command. 

Legally, the smoke eaters of 
UMass are an auxiliary depart- 
ment of the Amherst Fire De- 
partment and also members of 
Civil Defense. As such, they at- 
tend fires in town, for which they 

Many Study-Scholarship 
Programs Now Available 

by JACQUELINE GALLION '64, Collegian Staff Reporter 

Openings for a number of 
study and scholarship programs 
are now available to UMass stu- 
dents. One of these, the Sum-

versity of Hawaii, offers round 
trip transportation, dormitory ac- 
commodations, sightseeing trips, 
and choice of courses in 39 fields 
for as low as $555. 

as well as 
those on campus and provide an 
important service to both areas. 
Although the University has no 
equipment of its own, the town 
pos.sesses some of the finest 
available and is currently buying 
a new truck. 

The department is limited to 16 
members by the town of Am- 
herst and the current comple- 
ment of 15 men is the largest to 
date. Last year's members com- 
pleted basic and advanced train- 
ing classes in fire fighting tech- 
niques for officers and men which 
was sponsored by the Common- 
wealth. They also fought blazes 
in Northampton and Greenfield 
as well as in Amherst. 

The fire fighters are now at- 
tending Amherst Fire Depart- 
ment drills and receiving top co- 
operation from town officials. 

The campus fire department is 
now in a period of increasing 
recognition by both town and 
campus. They perform many 
needed services entirely without

Scouting Report 

During Tuesday's meeting of 
the quarterback club, Coach De- 
laney, who scouted Rhode Island, 


presented some of his observa- 

The Rams are essentially a 
split T team which sports small, 
but speedy backs and a big line. 
Two members of the forward 
wall, sophomores Alan Abruse 
and Marvin Glaubach, tip the 
scales at 240 and 235. It was this 
same stalwart line that held Ver- 
mont to a total of 40 yards rush- 
ing last week. 

John Rollins, who personally 

ly regarded end, Roland Bettz, 
was often on the receiving end. 

The Ram's running attack em- 
ploys the belly series very effec- i 
tively. The QB can either give to 
the fullback, pitch out to a back, 
ot keep the ball and run around 

Delaney ended hjs report by 
saying that if UMass doesn't 
make many mistakes they should 
win. His concluding remark was: 
"We have a better football team."

TEP In Nose 
Bowl Clash 

AEPi, before, an estimated 
crowd of 500 people, defeated the 
boys from TEP 7-6 in the annual 
nose Bowl game, last Monday 

The contest on the whole was 
a strictly defensive one, with hard 
blocking and fine passing. The 
first score of the game came 
with only two and one half min- 
utes left to play in the first half. 

AEPi signal caller Mike Klein- 
erman, fired to his right end 
Mike Ellison who went over for 
the score. The point after was 
made on a pass from Hammel- 
burg to Ellison, and at the end 
of the half the blue^and gold led, 

Although the .second half was 
also a defensive period, the Tep- 
pers seemed to have the edge, 
since their passing attack started 
clicking under the able hands of 
Quarterback "Borco" Rason. 

TEP's only tally came during 
the latter part of the second half.

Freshman Gridders Edged 
By Surprised B.U., 13-12 

The freshman football squad, 
led by Coach Dick MacPherson, 
lost a heartbreaker Wednesday to 
a Boston University team which 
was supposed to be their best in 
years, 13-12. 

With twelve seconds to go in 
the game, B.U. got possession of 
the ball on the UMass 48. A pass 
brought them deep into UMass 
territory, and on the last play of 
the game, a second pass allowed 
them to score. 

The little Redmen squad looked 
very good on the field, stated 
Coach MacPherson. Early in the 
game, halfback Fred Lewis, whose 
exceptional speed and ball han- 
dling has marked him for a com- 
ing Redmen star, took the pig- 
skin and scampered 48 yards for 
the score only to be called back 
on a clipping penalty. 

This didn't stop him, however, 
for soon after he ran 56 yards for 
the Massmen's first TD. 

A while later, John Fernandez 
ran a punt pack 68 yards for the 
second Redmen touchdown. 

B.U.'s initial score came when 
they pulled off a great draw play 
to go fifty yards for the TD. 

Coach Dick MacPherson was 
pleasantly surprised at his 
squad's showing and is confident 
that the team will do well against 
Springfield and New Hampshire. 
The game with UConn should be 

tougher, as the Huskies are 
boasting a good deal about their 
freshman squad. 

The frosh will really be out to 
get the win next Saturday when 
they host Springfield, for Coach 
MacPherson graduated from that 
school, having played exceptional 
football there.

Three Alumni Work On 
Operetta Guild Production 

Three outstanding alumni of 
the university have collaborated 
in writing, composing and light- 
ing the Operetta Guild's fall pro- 
duction of Thunder in the Hills. 

Robert Boland, a 1952 graduate 
of UMass, is a guild member of 
long standing. He has had ex- 
perience as an actor, choreo- 
grapher, set designer, and now 

Boland is now director of art 
in the secondary schools of Pitts- 
field, along with directing ama- 
teur theatre in the Pittsfield area. 
At the University he was elected 
Man of the Year and won ac- 
claim from Rodgers and Ham- 
merstein for his set design in 

Russell Falvey, composer of 
the play, a 1955 graduate, is also 
a Guild alumni, and has estab- 
lished himself in a musical career 
on the educational level. 

He was bandsman in the U.S. 
Army stationed at West Point, 
and taught and directed choirs in 
the New York area. He is now 
director of vocal music in the 
Holyoke School system. 

This is his first attempt at 
composing a musical production, 
but he has plans for several more. 

Jack Watson, light designer, a 
1958 graduate of UMass, was in- 
fluenced by Robert Boland, Rus- 
sell Falvey and Doric Alviani to 
pursue a career in theatre. He 
began light designing with the 
Guild and since has gone on to 
become Technical director of Wil- 
liams College Theatre. While on 
the University campus, Watson 
distinguished himself with the 
Roister Doisters, Community 
Opera and Amherst College thea- 
tre Groups as well as the 
Operetta Guild. 

Canterbury Club

The Canterbury Club has an- 
nounced plans to hold a progres- 
sive supper on Sunday, Oct. 16. 
All Episcopal students at the 
University are cordially invited 
to attend. Cars will leave at 6:00 
p.m. from 768 North Pleasant

Physical Education Building. 

Plans for the successive weeks 
include both special and com- 
munity projects. On Saturday, 
October 22, the Club plans a visit 
to the Belchertown State School. 
Students are invited to come to 
regular club meetings at 768 
North Pleasant Street every Sun- 
day at 6 p.m.

Smoking In Library 
Is Reported Unlikely 

There has been much talk 
around the campus concerning 
smoking in the library. 

Many of the students seem tp 
favor the idea, but Hugh Mont- 
gomery, head librarian, to whom 
the idea was originally presented 
by Provost Shannon McCune and 
Secretary of the University John 
Gillespie, report that there are 
many problems involved. 

The main problem seems to be 
one of damage to the library fur- 
niture, especially the desks in the 
new addition. "There are always 
a few people", says Montgomery, 
"who are not mature enough to 
accept the responsibility of tak- 
ing care of property." He is 
against having smoking in the 
new addition to the library, be- 
cause the small equipment budget 
of $500 could not replace the de- 
faced furniture. Montgomery has 
witnessed the carelessness of stu- 

dents in putting out their ciga- 
rettes at Harvard's Lamont Li- 
brary, and he thinks the same 
thing might happen here. 

The librarian favors giving the 
idea a try in the old reading 
room where the furniture is not 
as new. The main problem here 
would be ventilation. 

Stuffiness in the room would 
cause stale air and the windows 
would have to be opened, thus in- 
creasing the noise in the library. 
Right now the controversy is just 
in the discussion stage, but Mont- 
gomery hopes to be able to get 
together with the Student Senate 
to discuss these problems and a 
possible policing system.

Notes Used 
At Michigan 

University Study Service, a 
student organized note-taking 
service designed to provide stu- 
dents of large lecture courseg 
with mimeographed lecture notes, 
got underway recently at the 
University of Michigan. 

Two lecture sections, Zoology I 
and Anthropology 31, are cur- 
rently covered by the plan. Stu- 
dents in those courses are fur- 
nished with a free set of notes 
for the week's lectures and given 
the opportunity to subscribe for 
further coverage. Ultimately the 
organization hopes to offer notes 
for about ten large lecture 

Prices have not been set yet 
due to the present fluidity ot the 
operation; however, good wages 
for notetakers and costs of print- 
ing and distribution will probably 
dictate a charge of 15 to 20 
cents a lecture, a spokesman 

The plan received the approval 
of Roger M. Heyns, Dean of the 
Literary College, last week. 
Heyns, who met with the literary 
college administrative board, de- 
cided to permit the operation at 
the discretion of the instructors. 
Professor Smith, who teaches 
Zoology I, noted the conflict be- 
tween listening and writing that 
develops when students attempt 
to learn and take notes at the 
same time. 

Dean Heyns called printed 
notes equivalent to "lecturing at 
its worst," as each student tends 
to take notes especially pertinent 
to himself.

ton High School and the Univer- 
sity of Michigan. Aside from 
three years at Brown University 
and one year in the Phillipines, 
she and her husband have spent 
most of their time at the Univer- 
sity of Michigan. 

Besides the President and Mrs. 
Lederle, the family consists of a 
nineteen-year-old daughter and a 

f o u r t e e n-year-old son. Their 
daughter is a sophomore at the 
Univ. of Michigan while their son 
is attending a private school in 
Pennsylvania. Neither of the 
children has had an opportunity 
to see our campus but both of 
them are looking forward to do- 
ing so at Christmas time. 

When asked what she thought 
of our campus, Mrs. Lederle 
stated that she thought it was 
beautiful. She contrasted the 
various types of architecture 
present at the Univ. of Michigan 
with the overall uniformity of 
our buildings. "You have lots of 
land to develop here," she said. 

Stylewise, Mrs. Lederle added,

both campuses seem to be al- 
most the same. Skirts, sweaters,

the order of the day at Michigan. 
"Their campus tends to be a 
little more cosmopolitan, how

She commented that the transi- 
tion from being the wife of a 
faculty member to being the wife 
of a university president has not 
been too difficult for her as 
everyone has been very friendly. 
The main problem has been get-

bit larger than their former one, 
Mrs. Lederle added.

joyed both the Harvard game and

"It's a man's job in most in- 
stances to keep things together, 
both at home and at his job," Dr. 
Taylor said. "He generally bears 
the financial responsibility for 
keeping the home running and

A good deal of the blame, said 
Dr. Taylor, can be put on fem-

Teaching Background 

In his junior year ui UMass, 
he was a lab instructor in Fresh- 
man Botany. He taught a re- 
fresher course in Freshman Eng- 
lish, in his junior year. After 
graduation he taught English at 
UMass, and did graduate study 
at Amherst College. Goldberg re- 
ceived his Masters degree at 
Yale in 1932. The following year 
he received his Doctorate of 
Philosophy in English Literature 
and Linguistics at Yale. 

"I am very much impressed 
with the sheer size and com- 
plexity of the whole operation," 
said Goldberg. "I feel that there 
is a great challenge and heavy 
responsibility which rests on the 
Collegian staff. The Collegian is 
one of the important instruments 
by which the whole university 
community comes to know itself. 
It is also the agency by which 
the public image of the university 
is formed."

Foreign Students Honored 
At Informal SU Reception 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

An informal reception for stu- 
dents from other countries was 
held at 8:30 p.m. in the Main 
Ballroom of the S.U., Friday, 
October 14. 

In charge of the annual event 
were Tsuan H. Feng, Chairman 
of the Advisory Board for For- 
eign Students and Robert A. 
Potash, Foreign Student Coordin- 
ator and Advisor. 

President John W. lederle and 
Mrs. Lederle received the stu- 
dents and guests. Provost Shan- 
non .McCune, members of the 
faculty, representatives of the 
various departments, and inter- 
ested townspeople of Amherst, 
were present to greet the students. 

A consideration of the native 
lands of this group shows that 
two-thirds are from Asia and 
one-thiid from Europe and Afri- 
ca. The individuals attending 
were from Austria, Canada, 
China, Colombia, Ethiopia, Fin- 
land, France, Germany, Greece, 

India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Is- 
rael, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Phil- 
ippines, Singapore, Tanganyika, 
United Arab Republic, Venezuela, 
and the West Indies. 

During the brief formal por- 
tion of the program. Potash dis- 
cussed the scope of foreign stu- 
dent membership at the Univer- 
sity. The Provost extended his 
welcome on behalf of the admin- 
istration and faculty; Dennis 
Twohig, president pro-tempore of 
the Senate, spoke on behalf of 
the student body. 

Lederle concluded the program 
by adding his welcome to UMass. 
He called himself a foreign stu- 
dent here, too, by virtue of his 
"newness" to the campus. 

He concluded by offering the 
hope that UMass would be able 
to aid in the achievements of 
the goals of this group. He ex- 
pressed his pleasure that the Uni- 
versity is recognized and included 
on this international level.

Coffee, Tea Or Milk 

— Photo by Tilman 

Dr. Thomas O. Wilkinson of the sociology and anthropology de- 
partment chats with students during OHe of the morning coffee 
hours held last week in the Bristol room. 

In the soberly, refreshing atmosphere of the Bristol — Essex- 
Hampshire rooms of the Student Union, students and faculty now 
have the opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee and a bit of pastry with 
early morning chat. The Student Union Governing Board has ar- 
ranged, solely on an experimental basis, coffee hours — each weekday 
for the past three weeks bet^\'e(*l 9 to 10:30 a.m. — in order to en- 
courage a closer student-faculty relationship. 

The response to this break with the mumble-jumble of the Hatch 
appears to be very good. Many of the mornings have been a little 
slack perhaps, but this might partly be due to hesitation by students 
who suspect that this is strictly for the elite of the campus, the fac- 
ulty. Possibly, not all of the students are yet aware of this coffee 

At any rate, why not just stop in some morning, if you haven't 
already, and see what's going on in the Bristol room? See who's 
there? Since the question of continuing this coffee hour is coming be- 
fore the SUG Board in the very near future, now is certainly the best 
time for us to show interest in the continuation of this new program. 

Watch Out For That Car! 

Millions of dollars worth of educational facilities have 
been invested in the University of Massachusetts to add to 
the mental and social betterment of the students. It seems, 
therefore, slightly ludicrous that the safety of its students 
is presently being regarded with laxness. 

We are speaking about the hazardous traffic-pedestrian 
lituation in front of the Student Union during the hours 
of eight, twelve, and four o'clock. A student takes his life 
in his hands when he attempts to cross the street there at 
any one otf those times. 

A random survey on one weekday showed that approx- 
imately 187 cars pass the Union between 11:50 a.m. and 
12:10 p.m. O^ this number 101 belonged to the administra- 
tion while only .y.T belonged to the students. The only ad- 
ministrative car not to make an appearance was the police 
car. Obviously this onslaught of traffic creates a major 
hazard to the crowd of students flocking to the Union, 
classes, and lunch. 

The administration passes off this situation regretfully 
by emphasizing the fact that the school budget will not al- 
low any additional policemen; thus the commerce in this 
region goes on undirected. While we sympathize with the 
financial difficulty involved, we note that two new policemen 
have been added to the force. Could not at least one of these 
law enforcers be prevailed upon to come to the aid of the 
students in their battle against the vehicles of the adminis- 
tration? What areas of the campus are so dangerous as to 
require the attendance of the entire police force at these 
times? Is this problem so unimportant that it can afford to 
be overlooked? We think not. 

If we were to concede that police aid is not plausable, 
another solution might be considered. Would it be possible 
to construct temporary barriers in the vicinity of the Union 
during these perilous hours? This would force the traffic, 
especially that from South College, to be rerouted through 
the rear exits, enabling the students to cross the street 
without eminent danger. 

Dean Hopkins himself declared: "We are extremely 
fortunate that we haven't had any dangerous accidents. The 
situation is certainly appalling." 

If, then, the situation is viewed with distress even by 
the hierarchy of the school, why is this policy of laissez- 
faire employed? Is the administration waiting for someone 
to be critically hurt before taking any action? We might 
remind them that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound 
of cure. JO. 

We would like to add, however, that this mtuntion ia vot heinq 
completely tffnored. Besides the current Collegian investigation of the 
traffic problem in front of the Union, the Student Senate has asked 
one of the senators for a report on the situation. Dr. Gillespie Ad- 
ministrative Assistant to the President, also has a graduate stu- 
dent studywfi the matter. With all this due cnrnsideration it would he 
nice if snrnp solution rould hr reached. 


Fraternities Overrated 


In tho left-lead article of the 
Sept. 16 issue of the "Collegian" 
("Dean Hopkins Urges Presi- 
dents to Brag"), you quote Dean 
Robert S. Hopkins as asserting 
the necessity for fraternities to 
"got off of the defensive." In 
the three past years that I at- 
tended UMass., I was impresse<l 
with the fact that the fraternities 
were on the offensive. Yea, the 
most offensive students on cam- 
pus were fraternity members. 

Rut it is on another point that 
I choose to challenge Dean Hop- 
kins. He .suggested for fraterni- 
ties such activities "as entertain- 
ing orphans, decorating Am- 
herst's parking meters at Christ- 
mas and collecting for the heart 
fund in Amherst ..." This is 
a brutal insult to the persons who 
perform these admirable deeds. 
I would prefer to think these 
deeds were perfonned by persons 
sincerely trying to express good 
will, not persons desperately try- 
ing to promote good publicity. 

As the matter stands, the fra- 
ternities get excellent coverage 
through student stringers and 
the University News Office, and 
much too much space in the "Col- 
legian". The "Collegian" serves 
students, faculty, administration, 
and alumni — the fraternities are 
less than 40% of one of these 
groups, the students. I have seen 
issues of the "Collegian" in 
which they have been granted 
80% of the news pages (other 
than ads), yet Editor Rayner 
staunchly asserts that the frats 
will get even more coverage — 
Good grief! 

The fraternities are over-pub- 
licized, their importance over- 
rated. If they feel pressed in a 
struggle for existence, perhaps 
an increased effort to support 
more worthwhile activities will 
induce the needed vigor. Surely 
the use of such programs as the 
Orphan Annie Drive as models 
for increased positive action will 
do far more toward reaching the 
alleged goals of fraternities than 
a program of cramming boasting 
down the throats of indifferent

In Changing Times 


What Gorgeous Veins 
You Have, My Dear 

There's still time, until Wed- 
nesday, for those under 21 to 
donate their blood to the Red 
Cross. Necessary forms, which 
may be picked up at the SU 
lobby counter, should be filed 
with parental consent by this 
deadline. All those over 21 do 
not need to worry. They can 
contribute their red and white 
corpuscles when the bloodmo- 
bile arrives at Arnold House 
on November 2 and 3. 



Agriculture. Upon taking power, the Communists found them- 
selves up against many problems. Agriculture and industry were 
stifled, and inflation was running rampant. The Chinese, learning 
from the Russian "experiment," now instituted various land reforms 
which favored the poorer peasants. Instead of harsh and rapid col- 
lectivization, the Chinese established model collective farms which 
were to lay the ground work for things to come. (As we know, how- 
ever, the "communal" system has been pushed with fantastic vigor.) 

Some explain the comparative ease of Chinese collectivization by 
the fact that the Communists had, indeed, controlled many areas of 
China previous to 1949, thus preparing the peasantry in these areas 
for collectivization. This is probably true. In addition to the concen- 
tration of effort (implied by the collective system) the Communists 
opened new areas to fertilization and greatly increased output in 
grain, cotton, and other agricultural products. 

Industry. In China, as in the Soviet Union, women form a large 
part of the labor force. In 1954, 60% of the textile workers were 
women. (At the present, we have no reason to believe that this per- 
centage has not gone up, judging from the efficiency of the nurseries.) 

In steel production, Red China has increased output from 1.3 
million tons in 1952 to 8 million in 1958. By 1970, Mao Tse Tung en- 
visions a steel output of 30 million tons. In all, China has expanded 
Its industrial production of 1949 almost five times. With help from 
Russia, the Chinese have developed new machines and better tech- 
niques. This help together with the growing industrial labor force 
will no doubt assure the Chinese of higher industrial output in the 
years ahead. 

Education. The Chinese accompanied their gains in agriculture 
and industry with an even more significant drive in education. Obvi- 
ously, the Communists realized that they could not base a successful 
society on a population which, in 1949, was barely 10% literate. 

In China today there are over 200 colleges with an estimated 
500,000 science students. Indeed, with every year since 1949, the num- 
ber of Chinese who benefit from public education has increased two, 
three, and four-fold. The Chinese are operating at this moment at 
least four atomic reactors. This fact, indeed, is a harbinger of things 
to come. 

Health. With many millions of people, many of which live in ex- 
tremely close quarters, it is obvious that disease, if unchecked, will 
run rampant. The Chinese have instituted sweeping reforms in the 
fields of public health and sanitation. Vaccination is now common- 
place, and small pox as well as plague have been all but wiped out. 

So China grows and prospers under the impetus of stern govern- 
mental control. It is not for me to philosophize here upon the effects 
of Marx-Leninism since, as you see, this analysis is of an economic 

It is rather for us, as Americans, to realize that there are rough- 
ly 650 million Chinese living and working under a system which is 
diametrically opposed to capitalism. History has indeed shown that 
two hostile and opposing forces cannot long exist side by side. For 
your sake and mine, I hope that history is wrong!

Redmen Come From Behind To Foil Rams. 34-16 

Lussier^ Benvenuti^ Fernandez 
Pace UM Last Quarter Surge 

(Continued from page 1) 

The game's initial score came 
in the first quarter when Roger 
Benvenuti climaxed a 52 yard 
march by cracking over from the 
one. John Bamberry toed the ex- 
tra point and the Redmen were 
riding high, 7-0. 


The Rams bounced back early 
in the final half when Bob 
Humphrey took John McCor- 
mick's punt on his own 37, broke 
loose from a tribe of Redskins, 
and g-al loped 65 yards to pay dirt. 
Quartei-back Bill Baxter skirted 
the end on a keeper play for the 
two points to give the Rams a 
momentary 8-7 lead. 


The second UMass TD featurwl 
the runninj? of Lussier and the 
return to action of co-captain 
Tom Delnickas. Lussier did most 
of the carrying on this drive as 
he constantly cracked the right 
side of the Rhodey line. Mike 
Salem capped the drive by plung- 
ing over from a yard out. An at- 
tempted 2 point conversion failed 
and UMass had a 13-8 advantage. 
The lead changed hands again 
early in the final quarter when 
Rhode Island recovered Ken Ke- 
zer's fumble on the UM 47. The 
Rams drove for a first down on 
the 2 and three plays later John 
Rollins bucked over. The conver- 

sion attempt was successful when 
Baxter spotted Rollins and con- 
nected to give the Rams a 16-13 


The score remained unchanged 
until the Redmen snatched vic- 
tory from defeat on the McCor- 
mick to Lussier scoring play. 
Bamberry's toe was true again 
and the Redmen sported a 20-16 
Mass. Scores On Own Kickoff 
The next play was one of the 
most unusual this observer has 
ever seen. Massachusetts scored 
on its own kickoff. Rollins picked 
up Conway's kickoff and was 
soon hit hard. The ball popped 
loose and alert guard Ben Fer- 
nandez grabbed it in mid air and 
scampered all the way unmolest- 
ed. Bamberry converted again to 
push the count to 27-16. 

The Redmen climaxed their 
spree when Ed Bum pus recovered 
a Baxter fumble deep in Ram 
land. Benvenuti toted the ball to 
the two and then scored on the 
next play. Bamberry again split 
the uprights and the score- 
board's final figures sparkled, 
visitors 34-Rhode Island 16. 
Before the game the Rhodies 
had a colorful float parade 
around the field. At half time the 
winners were announced ... In 
the first and third periods the 

Rams failed to chalk up a first 
down . . . The Redmen now have 
lost 15 of the 17 fumbles they 
have committed this season . . . 
John McCormick completed two 
of the six passes he attempted. 
The 5-3 defense used by the 
Rams allowed the Redmen to pile 
up yardage on the ground so the 
airways were seldom in use . . 
John Bamberry has now convert- 
ed on 11 of 12 attempts for the 
extra point. That's very good for 
any league . . . Tom Delnickas 
ran the ball four time.s during 
his brief stint and piled up 19 
yards and two first downs . . . 
Sam Lussier had his greatest day 
in a Redmen uniform. The bull- 
dozing sophomore intercepted a 
pass for 18 yards, ran back two 
punts for 54 yards, caught two 
passes for 91 yards, and carried 
18 times for 86 yards.

Booters Downed By Strong, 
Speedy Trinity Squad, 10-4 


Last Friday afternoon the soc- 
cer club went down to another 
defeat, this time at the hands of 
a strong Trinity eleven, 10-4. 

The first half was a compara- 
tively close tussle with the men 
from Connecticut holding only a 
3-0 bulge at the half time whistle. 
The second half was an altogeth- 
er different story as the heavens 
opened up and rained goals on 
the UMass net. Trinity could do 
nothing wrong as they scored 
from all angles and positions. 

The Redmen themselves didn't 
do badly as they scored more 
goals in this game than in any 
previous contest. Most of them 
were scored while the Trinity 
first eleven were in there, also. 

It was simply a case of the 
predominantly young UMass 
team being outmanned. They 
gave a good account of them- 
selves, however, as Ck)ach Larry 
Briggs was very pleased with 
his team's performance against 
so strong a team. 

The whole team played a good 
game, but particularly outstand- 
ing were Andy Psilackus who 
scored two goals, Dave Amund- 
son who played his best game of 
the season according to Coach 
Briggs, and Bob Weeks at left 

Off this showing Friday which 
showed marked improvement, the 
Redmen are all set to break into 
the win column Tuesday against

Fine Team Effort Wins For 
Harriers Over BU, UConn 

by DICK 

Friday afternoon a fine team 
efTort by the Footrickmen on 
their home course enabled Mass. 
to edge out Connecticut and Bos- 
ton University, .S5-89-65, despite 
a rocord-breakinp performance 
by Bill Muller of BU. In winning 
the race in 24 minutes, 35 and 
one fifth seconds, the BU flash 
b^oke the then-existing record of 
Mass. 4.8 mile course by New 
Hamp.shire's Doug ]\IacGregor as 
a sophomore in 1958. 

As is often the case in a re- 
cord-breaking race, the pacer, 
who throughout the race was 
Muller, brought out the competi- 
tive spirit of the close followers, 
Conn.'s Cross and Mass.' Balch. 
and enabled MacGregor's record 
to be broken not once, but twice, 
as Cross ran the course in twen- 
ty-four mins.-fifty-three sees, to 
take second place. 

Balch, third in the meet and 
first for Mass., equaled MacGre- 
gor's record with the 25 min. Ifi 
second timing. Then Buschmann, 
the second half of Footrick's one- 
two punch, came in three seconds 
behind Balch, and was trailed by 
BU's Ellison, who posted 25 mins. 

QUINN '63 

24 seconds on the stop-watch. 

Conn grabbed sixth and seventh 
with Roberts and Kosinski finish- 
ing within a step of each other. 
At this point consistency on the 
part of Mass. proved to be the 
deciding factor as Blomstrom and 
O'Brien finished eighth and ninth; 
they were followed by Seale of 
Conn., but he was only a slight 
pause in the repetition as Red- 
men Proctor, Barron, and Avery 
took eleventh, twelfth, and thir- 
teenth places to clinch the meet 
for UMass. 

Durant became Conn's fifth 
man with his fourteenth place 
finish, and Hasbroucke finished 
strongly in fifteenth slot. B.U. 
got Oberg's sixteenth, Linask's 
twenty-first, and Querk's twenty- 
second place to arrive at a total 
of 65. 

The meet proved, above all 
else, one thing— that five men, 
not one, win a race. Both B.U. 
and Conn, got a man in before 
Mass. could, but the Redmen's 
consistent middle - of - the - race 
strength proved to be the big fac- 
tor in this race, and will be equal- 
ly important in the team's bid 
against Harvard tomorrow.

Student Teachers 
Government Aid 


Student delegates from teacher 
preparing colleges throughout 
New England attended a week- 
end professional conference at 
Sargent Camp. They adopted a 
resolution urging "immediate ap- 
propriation of substantial federal 
funds to be used by the states for 
support of public elementary and 
secondary education." 

More than 80 student teacher 
representatives from Connecticut, 
M a 1 n e^ Massachusetts, N e w 
Hampshire, Rhode Island, and 
Vermont at the Third Annual 
Student National Education As- 
sociation Northeast Regional Con- 
ference voted for the first time 
to take a formal stand on the 
controversial issue of federal sup- 
port for education. 

Declaring that "control of edu- 
cation should remain in the hands 
of state and local authorities," 
the students at the same time ex- 
pressed their belief that the time 

has come for the federal govern- 
ment to assume a major share in 
the financial support of the na- 
tion's schools. In a key vote the 
students urged that "federal 
funds be used for school con- 
struction and or teachers' sal- 

Officers of student education 
associations from every New 
England state affirmed the ob- 
ligation of future members of the 
teaching profession to make their 
voice heard in the determination 
of educational policies facing the 
country. The future of quality 
education in America, they de- 
clared, depends upon "prompt 
action to relieve classroom and 
teacher shortages through the 
use of federal resources to sup- 
plement local and state efforts."

University Dairy Judging 
Successful In Competition 

The members of the University

Cornell after classes last Friday. 
They competed against the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut, Cornell,

meet to prepare for the National 
Dairy Products Judging Contest 
in Chicago on October 31. On the 
thirty-first they will compete 
against 20 top teams from uni- 
versities across the country. 

At Cornell Richard Gleed '61 
took first place in the ice cream 
judging category, Richard Was- 
kiewicz '61, second place in both 
butter and cheese (cheddar) judg- 
ing, and Robert McQueston '61 
took second place in milk judg- 

The University Dairy Products

Election of officers of the Stu 
dent Senate tonight promises to 
be not only a contest of chal- 
lengers versus incumbents but 
also a contest between liberals 
and conservatives. 

The three incumbents represent 
the conservative camp. They are 
President pro tem Dennis J. Two- 
hig. Vice-president pro tem Gail 
Osbaldeston, and Treasurer pro 
tem Linda Achenbach. The secre- 
tary's post was left open when 
Sue Onksen didn't run for re- 

The difference between a lib- 
eral and a conservative in the 
Senate is primarily that the con- 
servative puts a greater emphasis 
upon keeping the tax rate down, 
while the liberal puts a greater 
emphasis upon the needed serv- 
ices. The consen-ative element 
will ask how much an added serv- 
ice is going to cost before look- 
ing at the question of how much 
the service is needed. The liberal 
usually will ask the two ques- 
tions in revorso order.

Honor Societies To Sponsor 
Dance, Rally Friday Night 

In preparation for the North- 
eastern game, there will be a 
football dance in the SU ball- 
room on Friday evening from 
8-11 sponsored by Adelphia, Mor- 
tar Board, Maroon Key, and 
Scrolls. All proceeds will be used 
to send the Band and Precision- 
ettes to the Springfield game on 
November 19. 

Due to the budget allotment, 
the Bands travel schedule calls 
for only two trips, to Harvard 
and Boston University. The Hon- 
orary Societies feel that much 
recognition can be gained for the 

University by having the Band 
and Precisionettes at the Spring- 
field game. Extra proceeds will 
be used to defray travel costs for 
students wishing to take a stu- 
dent-sponsored bus to the game. 

During the intermission there 
will be a rally in the Ballroom 
where Coach Charles 'Chuck' 
Studley will speak and where the 
cheerleaders will lead University 

Music for the football dance 
will be provided by the Univer- 
sity Dance Band. 

R. Morrissey 
Now Official 
Of Association 

Robert J. Morrissey, Placement 
Officer for men at the Univer- 
sity, was elected to the first Vice- 
Presidency of the Eastern Col- 
lege Personnel association at a 
meeting in Manchester, Vermont 
last week. 

It is one of seven regional col- 
lege placement officers' associa- 
tions and has a membership of 
college placement officers, and 
personnel directors of business 
from New England, New York, 
and New Jersey. 

This group meets yearly for 
the purpose of exchanging ideas 
on future planning for better as- 
sistance to college seniors and 
graduates in finding the right 

determine whether the tax will 
rise sharply or remain the same. 
Although the tax has been cut 
for two consecutive years, it was 
possible mostly through the rapid 
increase of the student popula- 
tion. An estimated cutback of 
350 students would mean either a 
reduction of the services, prob- 
ably in .the large organizations 
such as the Index, Concert Assn., 
and Collegian, or a tax increase. 
The liberal block, should it gain 
office, will probably bring the 
tax rate back to where it was 
two years ago, before conserva- 
tive elements cut the tax two 
consecutive years. These conser- 
vatives expanded services by 
about 10 percent, while the uni- 
versity population expanded at a 
greater rate, thus permitting the 

Pres. Twohig, who seemed to 
be unbeatable two weeks ago, is 
expected to be challenged by Ro- 
bert Trudeau. It may turn out to 
be a real contest^ since Twohig 
has been criticized severely for 
his conservative policies. Tru- 
deau, also a senior, is relatively 
quiet on the Senate floor but has 
a liberal voting record. He came 
into the public spotlight when he 
came in first place in a bitter 
contest for the three seats from 
Van Meter Dormitory. He not 
only received the highest num- 
ber of votes, but downed the op- 
position by nearly 100 votes. 

Twohig was vice-president un- 
der Robert Zelis and was elected 
president pro tem when Zelis re- 
tired last spring. Representing 
the married students dormitories, 
Twohig's chances will probably 
depend upon the number of toes 
he has stepped on in the Senate. 
Accused of being Twohig's "yes 

man" by some, Gail Osbaldeston 
will have a fight on her hands 
against the more liberal Arthur 
J. "Tex" Tacelli. While Miss Os- 
baldeston has a tremendous ad- 
vantage in experience gained 
as treasurer, since the only 
stated function of vice-president 
is the administration of the dis- 
tinguished visitors program; 
Tacelli also swamped the opposi- 
tion in the race for the three fra- 
ternity seats. 

Also running for vice-president 
is James O'Leary. According to 
one prominent senator, his 
chances are nil "because of his 

Miss Osbaldeston, although the 
safest bet in the three contests, 
is likely to be criticized because 
she has a number of other ex- 
tracurricular activities and has a 
consers'ative voting record. 

The biggest fight of the night 
will come when Donald A. Cro- 
teau challenges Linda Achenbach 
for treasurer. In Senate circles, 
Croteau is an extreme liberal 
and Miss Achenbach is an ex- 
treme conservative. 

Tax supported organizations 
are particularly interested in this 
contest because the treasurer lias 
the closest control over the of the organiza- 

Interpretation of Financial Rules 
Big Issue 
Another big issue in this race 
will probably be the question of 
who will interpret the rules of 
the Senate regarding fiscal mat- 
ters. A number of organizations 
and senators are concerned about 
the wide powers of interpreta- 
tions of Senate rules which have 
been assumed by the RSO office

Opportunity for careers in 
New York State government is 
open to college juniors, seniors, 
and graduate students through 
the Professional Career Tests, 
which will be given on Decem- 
ber 3. 

These tests open the way to a 
great variety of jobs for college 
graduates. Successful candidates, 
if appointed, may start work im- 
mediately after graduation. A 
bachelor's degree, regardless of 
the major, provides the require- 
ments for some positions. Others 
require specialized training or 
practical experience. 

Most appointments will be sub- 
ject to a year as a trainee at a 
salary of $4,600 after which the 
salary to $4,988 with five 
yearly increases to $6,078. Some 
appointments will be made direct- 
ly to the $4,988 level if the 
candidate has 30 credit hours of 
specialized graduate work or a 
year's experience. A new feature 
allows the direct appointment of 
some candidates with outstanding 
aptitude or scholastic achieve- 
ments to the $4,988 level. 

The State Department of Civil 
Service reports that opportunities 

for advancement are excellent. 
Most top civil service positions 
are reached by promotion from 
within the ranks. Directors and 
other top administrators earn 
salaries up to $18,722. 

A new feature of the State's 
Professional Career Tests pro- 
gram is the establishment of a 
list of graduates who do not meet 
the educational or other require- 
ments for some positions. This 
list is expected to be especially 
useful as a source of qualified 
candidates for local jobs such as 
Case Worker, where specialized 
college training is not required. 

Appointments are made con- 
tinually throughout the year and 
especially at graduation when 
many students become available 
for work. Citizenship is a re- 
quirement for appointment but 
candidates need not be residents 
of New York State. 

The Department of Civil Serv- 
ice urges graduates and students 
nearing graduation who are 
thinking seriously about entering 
State service to apply at once. 
Applications and full information 
may be obtained at the Univer- 
sity Placement Offices. 


Senate Elections: 
Outcome Vital To 
Entire Student Body 

Tonight's election of officers in the Stu- 
dent Senate is very •impoi'tant to every stu- 
dent and organization because it will vitally 
affect the question of how much the services 
will be expanded or cut back next year. 

While every candidate in the running is 
competent enough to do the job well, we feel 
that a liberal attitude is desperately needed 
to make up for the past year of conserva- 

While the overall budget for the years 
1958-59 and 1959-60 increased by 19.3 per- 
cent and 18.7 percent respectively, this year's 
budget increased only 4.3 percent. The un- 
dergraduate population rose 8.3 percent this 

Characterized by an attitude of "Let's 
wait until next year," the Student Senate 
completely failed to take full advantage of 
the rapid expansion of the university popula- 
tion, cutting taxes instead of expanding 
services. There just isn't going to be a next 
year for organizations who are waiting for 
funds for capital expenditures because there 
is going to be a cutback of 350 students in 

Just to maintain present services, the tax 
rate must be increased to where it should 
have been kept in the first place. 

While the organizations wait for needed 
expansion and improvement, it is the stu- 
dents not the organizations, who are being 

Another conservative philosophy which 
is to be condemned is their interpretation of 
the role of the Student Senate. 

While the conservatives now in office 
maintain that the role of administering the 
tax funds is not the chief role, they have re- 
fused to officially discuss and work out solu- 
tions to campus problems. It was the Senate 
which was asked first to act in the Maroon 
Key controversy last spring, and they re- 
fused. Under such policies, the Senate, and 
therefore the students, lose their power to 
other bodies such as the RSO Committee. 



Neo-Religious Tolerance 

To the Editor: 

The tendencies of the Federal administration to 
decry atheism, agnosticism and religious skepticism, 
to equate these with Oommunism, and to endorse 
Deism dV Christianity is truly a deplorable insult 
to those who, within the free democratic framework, 
are led by their consciences to the position of reli- 
gious uncertainty. 

That the Communist system is atheistic is no 
more reason for disparaging atheism than the fact 
that Franco's Spain is Catholic is a reason for 
despising Catholicism. 

Positions of agnosticism or atheism have been 
held by such great Americans as Mark Twain, Walt 
Whitman, Clarence Darrow and Ralph Waldo Emer- 
son, and by such great world thinkers as Bertrand 
Russell, Samuel Butler and Percy Bysshe Shelley. 
To depreciate the tradition of such great minds is 
to depreciate much of the liberal and humanitarian 
thought which is characteristic of the American 
spirit. , 

The fact that the Communists have attacked 

religion is not because the Communist state is 

atheistic, but because in setting the state up as a 

religion it cannot tolerate any dissenting religion, 
just as it cannot tolerate political criticism. 

Let us not use Communist methods in retaliation. 
Let us not establish a hegemony of Deism which 
would be as pernicious as the Communist hegemony 
of atheism. Let us instead allow our nation to be as 
rich in free and independent thinking as the Soviet 
system is sterile.

Neutral View on Quemoy and Matsu 

To the Editor: 

As Quemoy and Matsu have become the centers 
of recent wide-spread attention. It may interest the 
students to know that they need only turn to the 
Government 25 textbook, Government hy the People, 
l)y Bums & Pelatson, for an unbiased, untouched by 
the campaign, version of the question. 



Thunder in the Hills is a philosophical musical play involving 
conflicts of real people who are faced with the universal problem of 
how to live in a world which forces men to make the decisions which 
will mold their lives. • 

Joe Kane, played by Don Brown, a senior majoring in account- 
ing, is the antagonist, hiding his vulnerability behind a harsh and 
sullen front. This is Don's first appearance with the Guild although 
he has had previous musical experience. 

Jeb Gentry, played by Tom Dodge, becomes the victim of Joe's 
hate. He is an idealist, searching for something, but he does not know 
what this 'something' is. Tom is also a newcomer to the Guild. 

Margit, played by Buffy St. Marie, a junior philosophy major, is 
Joe's daughter. She becomes the point at which the personalities of 
Jeb and Joe converge. She draws her idealism from Jeb but her 
strength of character from Joe. 

The romantic leads in the play are Melissa Henner and Tom 
Gentry, Jeb's brother. Theirs is the 'perfect love.' A love which is in- 
evitable, and which simply happens without any struggle or conflict. 
This simplicity contrasts sharply with the complexities of Joe Jeb 
and Margit. Melissa is played by Arlain Anderson, a sophomore and a 
member of the Chorale. Tom Gentry is played by Al Couper, a senior 
accounting major who appeared last year in the chorus of Bells Are 

Muw and Fess are a comic couple in the play, played by Karen 
Canfield, known for her performance in Auntie Mam£, and Steve Al- 
len, a well known figure on campus for his work in the Statesmen, 
CA, and Chorale. He is also Business Manager of the Guild. They are 
the leaders of the community, and the chief cause of the increase in 
the census. "" 

Robey and Polly are another comic couple played by Paul Cwik- 
lic, an old hand with the Operetta Guild, and Judy St. Jean, manager 
of the Guild and a long time member of musical organizations on 
campus. These two, together with Maw and Paw provide vigorous and 
earthy Tiumor to the play. In the Whiskey Quartet they manufacture 
a history of the world as it might have been had Adam not left tho 

The show will run for four nights: October 19, 20, 21 and 22 
Wednesday night is exclusively for students. Friday night will honor 
President Lederle, and Saturday night will be for the benefit of the 
Alumni Fund. After the Saturday night performance, Mr. Johnston of 
the Alumni office will give a cast party on stage for the public to 
meet Robert Boland and Russ Falvey, co-authors, and the cast 

Frankly Speaking 

Realizing full well that the Collegian may 
incur the wrath of the conservative element 
in the senate and might easily suffer a budg- 
et cut next Spring, we strongly urge now, 
and will continue to urge, the student rep- 
resentatives to vote for the liberal candidates 
because their ideas are what is needed by 
the student body.

B & P's account states (in words too numerous 
for your column) that all military experts agree that 
the islands are indefensible and not vital to the de- 
fense of Formosa. While it does state that abandon- 
ing them may encourage the Reds to try more ter- 
ritorial siezures, it also points out that tho President

forces should intervene only in the event the attack 
on the islands was clearly a prelude to the attack 
on Formosa." (These sound almost like the exact 
words of Kennedy.) They both felt that the chief

as that would allow him to determine whether or 
not the U.S. would go to war against Red China.

Philosophy, M.I.T. 

In the collegiate circle privacy is unpopular and gravity is dis- 
dained. These two facts are responsible, in part, for the dilemma of 
self-understanding with which every student must cope. 

To the student who strives for that urbanity and self-assurance 
which would characterize him as "with it", such a statement is mean- 
ingless because he thinks he finds himself in others. This is untrue. 
It is a sad fact that on the campus— where the development of in- 
dividuality should be most stressed— one finds a painfully earnest 
cultivation of others' standards. This is manifested in speech, dress, 
of course, and sloppy values. Solitude is abhorrent; sincere self- 
examination is largely unthinkable; evaluation of the collegiate mores 
is reserved only for the "eggheads." 

It seems as though the person's duty to understand himself is his 
last duty. His first duty appears to be: '•How can I understand others 
so that I will prove acceptable?" Hence, we see the phenomena of 
Hatch-roosting, calculated hilarity, oven^-orked butts at the house- 
mother, overworked butts at the Dean, an unwarranted esteem for 
alcohol, a disinclination to approach living too seriously, and above 
all a pathetically studied effort to appear as though one knows what 
it (college, life in general, social values) is all about. First and 
foremost it seems altogether necessary that one appears as though 
one were a connoisseur in the ways of the world. In short, social fi- 
nesse becomes primary and one's values are oriented to how this ef- 
fect may best be achieved. 

This is hardly a preparation for the tasks and standards of adult- 
hood. To find ourselves as potential adults at least, it is necessary to 
isolate ourselves from our neighbors- -physically and psychologically 
—and consider ourselves in a private, ca opposed to a public, context. 
Try thinking of yourself in terms of yourself. Who, then, are you? 
Are you what you say? Are you what you wear? Are you where 
you go ? Are you what you do ? No. You are the agent of these ac- 
tivities. It is an exceedingly tenuous concept— this thing called self, 
the private agent. And yet, unless you are to become vapid and 
amorphous it is your responsibility to make your own acquaintance. 

You cannot accomplish this through an anxious cultivation of ap- 
pearances. You can do it somewhat through the interplay of attitudes 
and ideas with others. But, basically, it is coming to terms with your- 
self that makes a beginning. Try, in -the solitude of night, asking 
yourself the fundamental questions: not what will I wear Saturday 
or will I pass the quiz? Try formulating your own picture of the 
world, or ask yourself why your very existence should be of any con- 
sequence. You will probably hear some startlingly hollow— and 
frightening-echoes. And it IS frightening not to be able to put your 
finger on yourself or on your ideologies. But it initiates maturity. 

Self -understanding is a high undertaking, for without it an 
ethical code of living is uncertain. Your creeds and your conduct are 
shaped by it; and whether or not they are legitimate creeds and 
worthy, conduct determines the destiny of our civilisation

Kappa Sig Still Undefeated As 
Intramurals Pass Middle Mark 

As the IFC football games 
come to the half way mark, KS 
and AEPi respectively lead their 
leagues. In Monday night's games 
KS downed LCA, 26-14, in the 
opening match. The first score 
came on a pass from quarterback 
Paul Winnick to end Bob Hatch. 
The point after was scored by 
Winnick on an end run. Bob 
Vigneault passed to Phil Athenas 
to make the score 13-0 at the 


LCA scored first in the second 
half on a pass from Gig Khouri 
to end Don Moore. Moore also 
scored the point after. An inter- 
ception by Tony Simone who ran 
for the score gave KS a 19-7 
lead. Khouri then ran off tackle 
for an LCA score and Moore again 
made the extra point. KS came 
back with two scores on passes, 
Winnick to Rod Corey and 
Charlie Ruma to Bob Hatch. 
Final score: KS 26, LCA 14. 


The big sui-prise of the night 
was when AEPi tied Sig Ep in 

by JAY BAKER '63 

the final game of the evening. 

Sig Ep scored first on a triple 
reverse play with Pete Romano 
passing to center Bruce Wolfe 
in the end zone. The point after 
was unsuccessful as the passer 
was rushed and tagged. The half- 
time score stood at 6-0. 

AEPi went over for the tally 
on a pass from the quarterback 
to halfback Amie Sgan. The 
point after was blocked. Final 
score: SPE 6, AEPi 6. 
In other action TKE rolled 
over ASP by a score of 26-12. Ed 
Cronin passed to halfback Ron 
Crandall and Osetek caught the 
point after as TKE went ahead, 
7-0. ASP came back on a pass 
from Art Learson to Bill Boyle. 
Joel Lerner ran around end to 
give TKE a halftime lead of 13-6. 
TKE scored twice in the sec- 
ond half, once on a pass from 
Cronin to Barry Woodland, the 
point after being made by Osetek, 
and on a run by Mike Spadafora. 
ASP also scored. Art Learson 
throwing to Jack Campbell. Final 

score, TKE 26, ASP 12. 


In Monday's last game QTV 
zoomed by PSD, 28-12. Quarter- 
back Frank Pisiewski was QTV's 
big gun. He threw three passes 
in the first half. Passes were 
caught by Thornton Banks, Jack 
Morrissey and John White. The 
extra points were made by Chuck 
Sherman. QTV also caught PSD 
for a safety to give them a 22-0 
halftime lead. 

In the last half Pisiewski also 
threw another touchdown pass to 
Thornton Banks. The conversion 
was deflected. 

PSD's only score was from 
quarterback John Pirog to end 
Jerry Chaskelson. Final score- 
QTV 28, PSD 6. 


In the Dorm leagues which are 
just about getting started, But- 
terfield blanked Hills North in 
Tuesday night's opener, by a 
score of 6-0. Hal Colton scored 
on a pass from quarterback Pete 
O'Sullivan in the only score of 
the contest.

The P'reshman soccer team 
scored an impressive 4-3 victory 
Saturday in a game that went 
into overtime. The visitors from 
Windham College had tied the 
game with the aid of a lucky 
break midway through the final 
period. With UMass goal tender 
Dick Hassyista all alone as de- 
fender, due to a penalty kick, 
Gonzalea scored on an open net. 
UMass had taken a 2-0 lead in 
the second quarter on two goals 
by Dick Lette, the second on a 
penalty kick. 

With the score 2-2 in the first 
five minute part of the overtime, 
Kevin Lyons broke the game open 
with two goals. Goals by Han- 
nafin and Gorodetzki rounded out 
the scoring for Windham. 

The victory was entirely a 
team effort. The Massmen played 
an aggressive and clean game 
showing good sportsmanship. 

The next game for the frosh 
is Saturday, when they host the 
men from Worcester Academy.

Dear Dr. Frood: Here is a controversial bridge hand played at 
a recent college tournament. The contract was six no-trump. 
Some say declarer should have played the Fiskill Convention, 
squeezing West while end-playing East. Others, however, say 
a straight dummy reversal and a trump coup would bring home 
the contract. What would you do with a hand like this? 

iVo Trump 
DEAR NO TRUMP: In our club, successful play would require 
slapping the Jack, whistling at the Queen and quickly saying 
"Sir HInkum Dinkum Fuzzy Duster" when the one-eyed King 
is played. 

Dear Dr. Frood: How can a nice girl tell whether 
a boy is sincere— or just a wolf—when he asks 
for a kiss? 

Nice Girl 

DEAR NICE: Ask to see his teeth. 


Dear Dr. Frood: Everybody laughed when I brought my 
mother to the Homecoming Dance. What's so funny 
about that? 


DEAR FRESHMAN: She's probably a very funny woman. 


Dear Dr. Frood: Like every normal college man, I 
smoke Luckies. The other day I met this character 
who smoked something else. I want to know how a 
guy can be stupid as that and still get into college. 

Lucky Fan 

DEAR LUCKY: Obviously 
your college is very easy 
to get into. 

Dear Dr. Frood: I am 20 years old and I am about to marry 
a very nice, well-to-do man. He is 92 years old. Do you 
think the gap in our ages will affect our happiness? 

DEAR FIANCEE: Not for long. 

QB Club Reviews 
URI Features And 
Gets Scout Report 

Over 100 football fans attended 
the weekly meeting of the 
Quarter Back Club in the Student 
Union Tuesday noon. Movies of 
Saturday's game with URI were 
narrated by coach Bob Delaney, 
and Chet Gladchuk concluded the 
program with a scouting report 
on Northeast^n. 

Delaney reminded the audience 
that URI's 16-13 lead in the final 
minutes was a result of UMass 
mistakes, not because the Rams 
Were a better team. He also 
said, speaking for the coaching 
staff, that: "They (UMass) did 
not do as well as expected." 

Northeastern, Saturday's op- 
ponent, now has a 1-3-1 record. 
In last week's scoreless tie with 
Springfield the Huskies used six 
sophomores and three juniors in 
the starting lineup. Their big ag- 
gressive line averages about 200 
lbs., and the backfield is smill 
and fast 

Gladchuk feels that if we stop 
their running game, they'll take 
to the air, since they have 
thrown frequently in previous 
games. The Redmen line coach 
concluded that: "Unless we run 
into tough luck, I think we'll take

Mendes- France Stresses Economic Growth 

Senate Presidency 
Retained By Twohig 

There were no big surprises in 
Wednesday's Senate elections. 
Except for the offices of secre- 
tary, all incumbents were re- 
elected. Dennis Twohig retained 
the presidency by a 27-12 vote 
over Bob Trudeau. Using Wed- 
nesday's Collegian editorial and 
headline story, Twohig rebutted 
the accusation that he has sev- 
eral "yes-men" in key Senate 
positions. His opponent, Bob Tru- 
deau, outlir^ed a highly organized 
program, but was obviously over- 
come by Twohig's commanding 

The race for the vice-presi- 
dency appeared, at first, as 
though it would be e.xtreraely 
tight. Three people were nomin- 
ated: Tex Tacelli, Gail Osbaldes- 

ton and James O'Leary. After 
discussion, the race narrowed 
down to two candidates, Tacelli 
and Osbaldeston. Sen. Andy D'- 
Avanzo said that Tacelli and 
O'Leary "didn't have the capa- 
bilities she has." The vote was 
Osbaldeston 22, Tacelli 10 and 
O'Leary 5. 

Linda Achenbach bested Don 
Croteau by a 20-16 margin in 
their race for the Treasurer's 
job. There was little discrepancy 
in the policies of the two, but 
Miss Achenbach's experience was 
undoubtedly a great help in 
swaying some of the new sena- 
tors to her side. 

Marilyn Coris was elected 
Secretary with no opposition.

The fourth i^ 
cal "bull sessions" held Wednes 
day by Senator Flanders featured 
the Presidential TV Debates. 

Some of the main questions 
raised about the debates have 
been: how are the debates get- 
ting on, who is getting the upper 
hand, and are the prospects of 
the candidates strongly enhanced 
by their appearances? Senator 
Flanders' impressions were that 
Kennedy had the advantage in 
the first debate, because of 
Nixon's poor make-up, poor light- 
ing, and obvious discomfiture. 
However, in the .second debate, 
Nixon was "better painted, better 
lit, and had better control over 
himself". In fact, it seemed that 
he had a slight edge over Ken- 
nedy, because the latter was, at 
times, flustered, while Nixon re- 
mained calm. The Senator also 
felt that American voters have 
an excellent opportunity to esti- 
mate the ability of two men from 
these debates. They afford many 
people a chance to see the men 
in action. 

Quemoy-Matsu Question 
The debates have also proved 
to be an "attention getter" for 
the campaign. One of the issues 
rai.sed concerned the policy in re- 
gard to the islands of Quemoy 
and Matsu. During the second 
debate, it appeared that Kennedy 
was in favor of giving up these 
islands, while Nixon wanted to 
defend them as a matter of prin- 
ciple. However, in the third de- 
bate Kennedy .said that no presi- 
dent should state his policy in 
advance. He hedged a little be- 
fore admitting that he would be 
willing to fight if an attack on 
the islands preluded an attack on 
Formosa. Nixon's policy also suf- 
fered a change when he said that 
he agreed that the islands were 
important not for themselves, 
but in relation to Formosa. 
Cuba Triggers Debate 
The second international issue 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

series of politi- which caused a great deal of dis- 
cussion in the debates was that 
concerning Cuba. Although Ken- 
nedy believes we were remiss in 
allowing Cuba to become so ag- 
gressive, he doesn't go as far as 
Truman in saying that we should 
defend it against Russia. Fland- 
ers wonders what Kennedy thinks 
we should have done. Are we 
bound to interfere in the internal 
affairs of Cuba? Flanders feels 
that the question of what to do 
next, rests on what happens 

Nixon proposes several con- 
ferences of wise men after the 
election and before the assump- 
tion of office to consider the in- 
ternational problem. However, 
according to Flanders, "the judg- 
ment of the next President is 
more important than an assembly 
of new committees". Kennedy's 
prescription for the solution of 
international difficulties is a 
strong defense, backed by a 
strong domestic economy. 

Although this sounds like a 
good policy, the increase in de- 
fense is spoken of in term.s of 
large expenditures. Flanders feels 
that rather than increasing the 
defense budget, we should have 
a wise allocation of the billions 
which are now being spent. He 
also thinks we should maintain 
our atomic stalemate, but we 
should have smaller military in- 
stallations to cover the small 
skirmishes. The military should 
only be used to gain time for 
economic and political move- 
ments not to buy peace. How- 
ever, the debates don't indicate 
in what way Nixon and Kennedy 
propose to use the time given 
by a strong military force. The 
fact that economic and political 
action, not military action, is im- 
portant should be pinpointed. 

Both candidates look forward 
to greater economic strength. 
According to Flanders, the trou- 
ble with the econonnc situation 
ia the failure to divide equally 



Collegian .Staff Reporter 

Monsieur Pierre Mende.s- 
France, former premier of France 
and now governor of the Interna- 
tional Monetary Fund, addressed 
a capacity audience here Thurs- 
day. A lenowned authority on 
financial affairs, Mendes- France 
gave stimulating answers to the 
question, "Can the Western 
World Rejuvenate Its Economic 

He stated that within the next 
generation there will be a tre- 
mendous conflict, even greater 
than at present, between the two 
ideologies of communism and 
democracy, as they try to exert 
influence over the world. With 
the advent of the atom bomb, the 
great increase in world popula- 
tion, and the necessarily close 
relations between one country and 
another, the smallest decisions 
have become vitally important. 

Present Events Determine Future 

Mendes-France asserted that 
the future of the countries of the 
world, for the most part, will be 
determined by the crucial deci- 
sions which are made by the next 
generation of leaders. Vitally im- 
portant in the decisions, natural- 
ly, is the role economic growth 
will play in the destinies of every 
country. Because economic 
growth reflects national prog- 
ress, the country or countries 
with the highest rate of economic 
growth will ultimately win out, 
he claimed, "The duty of policital 
leaders is to stimulate economic 
progress by bettering production 
methods and utilizing all avail- 
able resources, while simultane- 
ously maintaining current trade 
and currency values. Thus an 
economy will increase steadily 
without significant setbacks. At 
present, the Soviet Union, under 
the Seven- Year Plan, is Increas- 
ing productivity S'A annually, 
while the U.S. and most of the 
western democracies are consi- 
derably behind that." 

Goals Must Be Set 

"To counteract this lag, poli- 
tical leaders must strive towards 
setting specific goals which would 
stimulate progress, yet maintain 
stability, and check inflation in 
times of prosperity." Mendes- 
France stated that labor, man- 
agement, and agricultural leaders 
should exert pressure for the 
betterment of the economy as a 
whole when necessary. 

"Once the afore-mentioned ob- 
jectives have been established, 
it becomes difficult to 
achieve them." Mendes-France 
believes that it is imperative for 
the western democracies to 
mobilize politically to rejuvenate 
policies in national economics.

former premier greeted students

resulted from increased ef- 
ficiency. He feels that there 
should be a three way split 
among the wage earner, the con- 
sumer, and the business, itself. 
As the situation now stands, the 
wage earner is getting the "lion's 
share" of the profit. However,

Mass. Review 
For YOU 

Cultural activities were undeniably ad- 
vanced last yeai- when the Massachusetts 
Review — a bursb of creative inspiration on 
the part of a small group of UMass faculty 
and administrators — was published for the 
first time. Once this idea for a literary re- 
view had been formulated, the enterprising 
group organized and pushed forward with 
determination and courage until the means 
for such a publication became an accom- 
plished fact. Backed through the generosity 
of subscribers, patrons, and alumni, the 
Revieiv editorial board produced four num- 
bers containing critical articles and essays, 
short stories, poetry, and artwork. 

The critic-reviewers of the Massachu- 
setts Revieiv have compared it with the re- 
views of Yale, Kenyon, and some of the other 
notables found on scholarly bookracks. It is 
no wonder. Listed on the content page of the 
first, historic issue of the Review was an Am- 
herst favorite, Robert Frost, whose poem, 
"Somewhat Dietary", was published here 
for the first time and in the handwriting of 
Frost. A poem by E. E. Cummings and the 
drawings of Leonard Baskin, noted con- 
temporary artist and sculptor at Smith Col- 
lege, were also included along with the 
works of many others. 

The faculties of Harvard, Dartmouth, 
Yale and Brown are now taking such an in- 
terest in the spirit and development of the 
Massachusetts Review that they are con- 
tributing manuscripts. Number 4, the Sum- 
mer 1960 issue, for instance, contained as a 
lead article Harry Levin's "What was 
Modernism?" A professor of comparative 
literature at Harvard, he gave this as an ad- 
dress to the Humanities Association of 

However, highlighting the whole idea of 
the Review is the opportunity now open to 
the faculty and other members of our cam- 
pus community for contributing and having 
published their own works. 

Although the Review is purely a Univer- 
sity creation, it has become a cooperative 
project of the four college area in both edit- 
ing and manuscript contribution. All the 
members of the editorial board are contrib- 
uting their efforts, and genius, with no 
promises of remuneration, except that of 
gratification in seeing a job well-done. 

Th'e Massachusetts Review has completed 
a year of publication ; it has shown itself to 
be of immense value to the campus. Prepara- 
tions are currently under way for Volume II, 
No. 1. We are ceilainly looking forward to 
this issue but to insure that this year's pub- 
lishing, and the future's, will not be ham- 
pered too much with non-literary problems 
we are hoping that the student body, the 
faculty and administrators, and the alumni 
will all get behind the Review. Certainly 
$1.25 per copy or $5.00 for a subscription is 
not too much to part with when you think 
of it in terms of an investment for the Uni- 
versity and for yourself. 

In Changing Times 



It is indeed difficult for one to write of our new 
found power without displaying some emotion. Those 
of us who gaze in horror at the victims of Hiroshima 
and Nagasaki offer no excuse for such emotion. 
Those of us who know the genetic consequences of 
radiation offer no excuse for this emotion. And this 
is all to the good. It is good because we realize the 
full significance of a force which, if used improper- 
ly, could mean the extinction of Mankind. It is good 
because it is a bond between men of reason and 
good-will. Indeed, one need not be excessively moral 
or idealistic to gasp at the very suggestion of nu- 
clear testing, to pale when our leaders speak of 
"clean bombs." Indeed, is the epitaph of our civiliza- 
tion to be: "They died a clean death"? 

Yet, in this discussion it is necessary to look back 
to 1945 for the purpose of "orientation", if you will. 
Let us make an objective study of just how far 
we've come. 

In the Hiroshima bomb, uranium-235, a "hard, 
heavy white metal," was used. From a layman's 
point of view, suffice it to say, the amount of energy 
liberated by the fission of one uranium nucleus is 
about ten million times as great as the amount 
liberated in the decomposition of one molecule of 
TNT. Since on a molecular basis TNT and the 
atom of uranium weigh about the same, uranium- 
235 is about ten million times as powerful as TNT!

The phrase which the laymen is most acquainted 
with is "chain reaction". To produce this chain reac- 
tion we must have a large piece of uranium-235. 
"Critical mass" is merely the size of the piece of 
uranium metal that conduces to spontaneous ex- 
plosion. Without utilizing the scientific terms for 
this chain reaction (e.g., the effect of neutrons on 
the uranium nuclei) let us merely use the time 
honored concept of the ping-pong balls poised on 
mousetraps within a container. It is easy to see 
that if one ball is "snapped from the trap", as it 
were, it will probably be snapped or "liberated". 
As you might imagine, "liberation" of these balls 
will be accomplished in an extremely short length 
of time! Indeed within a millionth of a second an 
atomic bomb would have exploded. 

The Nagasaki bomb utilized plutonium-239 
which is more easily obtained than uranium-235. 
Plutonium-239 also is regarded as a superior nu- 
clear explosive. Essentially, the mechanics of the 
chain reactions of both uraniMm-235 and plutonium- 
239 are the same. As for hydrogen bombs, let us 
just say that an atomic bomb is utilized as the 
detonator. If we consider this fact, it is not dif- 
ficult to realize that a hydrogen bomb has an ex- 
plosive energy one thousand times that of the 
Hiroshima or Nagasaki bomb! 

In our discussion it is important to ascertain the 
relative power of the bombs. In doing this we should 
first consider the explosive power of a one-ton block- 
buster (used extensively in World War II). "A one- 
ton blockbuster, a bomb containing two thousand 
pounds of TNT, can demolish a large building and 
may kill 100 people or more. A megaton equals the 
explosive energy of one million tons of TNT. The 
United States as well as the Soviet Union and 
Great Britain have access to hydrogen bombs which 
contain an explosive power equivalent to 15 mega- 
tons, or, 15 million tons of TNT. Do you wonder 
why Einstein was worried? 

As you have noticed, my discussion of this new 
weapon has been, in the main, confined to the ex- 
plosive power of such. This, however, is not of the 
greatest concern at the present time. By this I mean 
that our principal consideration at the moment is 
with the testing of nuclear bombs and the inevitable 
consequences to the people of the world. 

(This discussion will be continued on Monday.) 


If I might refer to the Commuter crisis for a moment before 
going into today's message . . . The Registrar's office was a bit dis- 
turbed about that particular column in so far as I neglected, in my 
proposition of placing Commuters on a Molokain type island, to in- 
clude a solution as to how they would attend their classes. 

Here is my solution: the professors would lecture to them from 
the shores of the pond. This would work out fine until it came time 
for the government professors to lecture. The ensuing scene could 
prove to be very embarrassing because, as most of us know, nobody 
attends government lectures on this campus. Therefore, people stroll- 
ing by would see this figure, standing on several dozen New York 
Times, addressing the thin air. Also, to facilitate the Times prob- 
lem, the department could have Joe Rogers swim out to the island 
several times a day with the students' copies. 

This attendance bit is nothing new to the department. I can re- 
member walking down the hall in Machmer last year and, looking in 
on one room, I found a government prof lecturing, referring to notes, 
checking his watch, and drawing diagrams on the board. As I in- 
truded further I saw that there wasn't a single soul in the class but 
the prof, yet he continued to lecture. After continuing for another 30 
minutes, this teacher did something which more or less shook me for a 
moment ... he passed out paper for a quiz on the New York Times. 
This dedication to duty seems to be the response to an infused drive 
of responsibility within all personnel of the government department 
which forces them to lecture incessantly regardless of attendance. In 
actuality, though, this infused drive I spoke of is an unmarked pill; 
a box of which can be purchased in a plain wrapper at your local 
drugstore. You must have seen the prof get shaky in class one day, 
fake a coughing spell, and step outside for a drink of water . . . and 
a pill. Then, disguised as a mild mannered political scientist for a 
daily, metropolitan agricultural college, he returned ready to take on 
the Third Reich, Congress and Henry Luce. 

I mentioned the professor who was checking his watch while he 
lectured. This provokes me to ask if you have ever noticed during the 
spring of the year that the members of the government department 
arrive at their classes always one hour ahead of time. Now keep this 
fact in mind while I refer you to some background material. Those of 
you who have taken Govt. 25 must have seen and heard during your 
infrequent visits to class (such jounieys are usually made under the 
mistaken impression that the course's hour exam is to be that day) 
that the lecturers believe the majority is not always right; in fact, 
seldom if ever is it right (while they point to our current Presidential 
administration as proof). A conclusion can therefore be gathered from 
all this: the reason the professors arrive at classes an hour earlier 
than we do in the spring is because there's a government department 
policy which refuses to recognize the rationality and constitutionality 
of Eastern Daylight Saving Time because it was a product of the 

This fetish they have with the majority being wrong and in- 
tolerance of the average man's right to vote, is frequently exemplified 
m the class room when, after hearing the professor elaborate on the 
stupidity of the average voter, a student will stand up and head for 
the door, angrily shouting, "I don't know about you guys, but I'm go- 
ing down to my ward and un-register!" At which time the prof will 
take out a small brown notebook, chalk up another stroke and mumble 
something to the effect of: "Well, a couple more and I may win the 
pool this week." 

Occasionally, after a lecture spiced with unkind words for Con- 
gress, Dwight Eisenhower, J. Edgar Hoover's morality, and Brook- 
line's isolationism, some students have the courage to question the 
lecturer's patriotism. "Don't get me wrong, fellas. I only do this for 
a living. Actually, I'm all for this country of ours," he says as he 
puts on the Indian Madras jacket and hops on his "made in Japan" 
bicycle and heads for the parking lot where his German Porche is

Roses For The Students 

To (he Editor: 

A few days ago parents and their daughter stopped in to talk 
with us. They had been visiting colleges in the area the day before 
and having a few extra hours came to our campus though the daugh- 
ter had no intention of applying here. 

Apparently they stopped before the Student Union and asked 
directions from a co-ed. She was very kind to them. She showed them 
around campus, took them to a dormitory and introduced them to the 

The next day they came to the Registrar's Office. They were so 
impressed with the courtesy and friendliness of this co-ed and with 
the beauty and facilities of the campus that the daughter decided 
over night to apply here. 

Time and again parents and applicants who come to our office 
comment on this friendliness and courtesy of our students who put 
themselves out of their way to assist visitors and speak enthusiastic- 
ally about the University. We are convinced that these students are 
carrying on one of our best public relations jobs. They are the best 
advertisement for the University. 

In this day and age when it seems that our tendency to criticize 
is greater than that to appreciate, it is heart warming to have these 
fine reports about our students to us from our visitors So we 
say "Roses To You."

Voting To Provide Test 
Of Old Political Trend 

1960 election should show whether 
new faith can be placed in once 
trustworthy political road signs 
which have been unreliable for 
the past 12 years. 

If Vice President Richard M. 
Nixon, the Republican presiden- 
tial nominee, defeats Sen. John 
P. Kennedy, the Democratic can- 
didate, these signs can be junked. 
From the Reconstruction years 
until the end of World War II, 
a consistent voting pattern de- 
veloped this rule: 

The political party winning 
control of the House of Repre- 
sentatives in mid-term elections 
always won the presidential elec- 
tion two years later. 

However, this rule has been 
broken in each of the last three 
presidential elections. 

After 16 years in the minority, 
the Republicans regained control 
of both the House and Senate in 
the first post-war congressional 
election in 1946. But the GOP 
failed to elect Thomas E. Dewey 
to the White House in 1948 when 
President Truman won his sur- 
prise victory. 

The Democrats retained control 
of the House and Senate in the 
1950 elections, but failed to elect 
Adlai E. Stevenson over Presi- 
dent Eisenhower in 1952. 

The Republicans recaptured 
control of Congress in 1952 but 
lost it in 1954 — a defeat which 
once would have foretold a Demo- 
cratic presidential victory in 
1956. Instead, President Eisen- 
hower polled an even larger ma- 
jority in his 1956 rematch with 
Stevenson, while the GOP could 
win control of neither the House 
nor Senate. 

In 1958, the Democrats in- 


creased their majorities in both 
chambers. Under the old pattern, 
the 1958 election would have 
presaged the election of a Demo- 
cratic President in 1960.

23, at both the 8:45 a.m. and the 
11 a.m. services. International 
students from four different 
countries outside the United 
States will be participating 
clothed in the national dress of 
their country, some speaking in 
their native tongue. All of the 
International students in the 
area are invited to attend and to 
wear the traditional di-ess of 
their country. 

The theme for the day will be 
"The Christian's Mission to the 
World," and the speakers will be 
Se Jin Kim, of Koi"€a, and The 
Reverend Donald Bossart from 
Wesley Church. Others partici- 
pating will be: Kaoru Ohta of Ja- 
pan, Miss Hyohee Kim of Ko- 
rea, Sydney Reid of the West In- 
dies, and Soesmono Kartono of 

Following the 11 a.m. sei-vice, 
there will be an informal coffee- 
social for the International stu- 
<lents and others attending, to be- 
come better acquainted.

neither candidate seems to agree 
with Flanders. Nixon, at present, 
is in a difficult position. He ha.s

were of vital importance. He then

The third meeting of the New 
man Club opened this Wednesday 
with a prayer led by P^ather 
Powers, and the reading of last 
week's minutes. Announcements 
of the coming activities such as 
the blood drive were given by 
Kevin Lavin, a leader in the 
Campus Religious Council. The 
speaker for the evening, Profes- 
sor Gary Brazier, was introduced 
with a brief note stating that his 
previous job was that of a teach- 
er at Western Resei've University 
in Cleveland, Ohio, and that he is 
at present a professor of Political 
Science at Boston College. 

Professor Brazier began his 
discussion on political thoughts 
with a quotation from His Emin- 

ence Cardinal Gushing who said 
not long ago that, "The Catholic 
laity must not apologize for be- 
ing in the Church, for they are 
the Church". From this point 
Brazier emphasized two duties 
which are part of the Catholic 
life; the spiritual duty, or the 
responsibility to work out one's 
own salvation, and the second 
duty, equally as important, to 
honor the system of law and or- 
der, or the civil authority. Quot- 
ing again he emphasized that 
Catholics "owe alligence not to 
individuals and not to offices but 
to the fabric of society". 

In 1960 the Catholic community 
is less susceptible to segregation.

last few decades has been ac- 
cepted as playing an important 
part in the American family. The 
Professor discouraged segrega- 
tion of Catholics into Catholic 
groups such as the Catholic boy 
scouts and the Catholic war 
veterans. He feels further inte- 
gration can only dispel the 
ignorance concerning Catholic 
action and belief which is the 
root of present political anti- 
Catholicism. Cardinal Gushing 
said that not long from now the 
special study of God will be taken 
out of the hands of the clergy 
and will become the common 
property of Catholics throughout 
the world. The insistence on 
specialization in all fields has 
produced only one great theo- 
logian in the United States. A 
priest told the Professor that 
good-humored anti-clericalism is 
not, fundamentally, impious. 

He stressed his point that the 
clergy when she deals with mat- 
ters relating to faith and morals 
is infallible, but when she speaks 
on matters not related to faith 
and morals, she is susceptible to 
error as all men are.

Best Season In Fourteen Years Soccer Team Loses 
Redman Goal As UMass Hosts To Worcester Squad 
Northeastern Huskies, Tomorrow 

by W. JOHN LENNON '61 

The Massachusetts gridders 
hope to become the winningest 
Redmen team in 14 years when 
they tangle with Northeastern 
tomorrow in a 1:30 p.m. contest 
on Alumni Field. The Redmen 
now boast a 4-1 record and a 
win will enable them to equal the 
five victories of Walter Harges- 
heimer's 1946 squad. 

The Huskies' teeth have been 
dulled thus far by three losses, 
but they're still plenty sharp. 
The men from Boston have a 
big, rough forward wall which 
averages over 200 lbs. Their 
backfield is highlighted by junior 
quarterback Ed Dutczak, who 
has only recently taken over the 
signal calling chores. Diminutive 
Ed has completed 12 of his last 
17 passes for a total of 261 yards 
and has found his target with 15 
of 27 since assuming his new 

The Northeastern ground at- 
tack is headed by Curt Perry, 

who churned up 84 yards in 16 
carries last week. 

Throughout the season the 
Huskies have been constantly im- 
proving. While holding Spring- 
field to a scoreless tie Saturday, 
they used six sophomores and 
three juniors in the starting 
unit. Coach Joe Zabllski was 
very much encouraged with the 
performance of his sophs and 
feels that his boys may be ready 
to spring an upset. 

UM coach. Chuck Studley, an- 
ticipating an aerial attack, has 
been drilling his men on pass 
defense. Northeastern's mentor 
has been readying his defense to 
cope with the single and double 
slot offense of the Redmen. 

With a couple of exceptions, 
Studley will probably use the 
same starting eleven as he em- 
ployed against URI. Mike Salem 
will replace injured Bob Roland 
at left halfback and John Bur- 
gess will man the right tackle 
spot, replacing Al Cavanaugh. 

Frosh Football Team Meets 
Springfield Maroons Today 


The Frosh gridsters entertain 
Springfield College this after- 
noon at the varsity scrimmage 
field. Coach MacPherson predicts 
a rough game for the Redmen. 

After a last minute loss to Bos- 
ton University last week, the 
Redmen will be looking for their 
first win. They are in sound 
physical condition, and ready to 

Springfield has played two 
games thus far. They lost both, 
but two top-notch teams were on 
the victorious end. The starting 
lineup is as follows.

Fernandez, Full. Palm, ends 
Slick and DeMinico, tackles Hag- 

berg and Ganem, guards Ray-

Jawns Drop 
UMass Cross 
Country Team 

by DICK QUINN '64 

The UMass Harriers took a 
beatinj? from a fine Harvard 
squad, 20-41, last Tuesday after- 
noon, as the Crimson took four 
of the first five, and seven of the 
first ten positions to completely 
outclass the Footrickmen. 

Harvard took the laurels as 
Jack Mullin ran the 5 mile course 
at White Stadium in a fast 26 
minutes, 10 seconds. Dave Balch, 
giving the only bright perform- 
ance in an otherwise dismal show- 
ing by Mass., placed second in 
26 minutes, 24 sees. 

The Crimson Tide continued to 
roll as Fitzgerald, Howard, and 
Hamlin got third, fourth, and 
fifth places. Blomstrom took 
sixth place for the Redmen, but 
Baldwin, Hildreth, and Knap 
quickly followed and wrapped the 
race up for Harvard. 

O'Brien finished tenth in 27 
mins., 43 sees., and was followed 
by Harvard's Benjamen and Bon- 
ner. At this point the heart of 
the Mass. attack arrived as 
Avery, Proctor, Buschmann, and 
Barron captured thirteenth, four- 
teenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth 
places respectively. 

It was perhaps the case that 
Harvard's familiarity with the 
Franklin Field course gave them 
a slight advantage, which they 
used to its utmost effectiveness, 
but Coach Footrick is hoping that 
his team can bounce back from 
the drubbing and regain the 
form it has displayed against 
Union, B.U., and Connecticut. 

Their next trial will be the 
YanCon meet a week from today, 
at Kingston, R.I. This meet will 
give the Footrickmen another 
chance against Maine, a team 
that defeated Mass. earlier in the 
season, and the reigning champ 
of the Conference. 

Tuesday afternoon our war 
riors of the soccer field gave it 
everything they had but it wasn't 
quite enough to beat the engi- 
neers from Worcster as they 
bowed 4-2. 

The Redmen started off as if 
it was going to be their day 
when rightwingers Stam Paleo- 
crassus teamed up with inner 
Andy Psilackus on a beautiful 
drive downfield that just missed 
resulting in a goal. 

WPI made a fast recovery, 
however, bringing the ball down 
to the other end of the field 
where center Bob Richmond put 
the ball in the nets after faking 
the goalie. 

Midway in the same period 
Richmond, not satisfied with just 
one goal, scored again when his 
lusty wind-propelled boot rocket- 
ed into the nets from twenty five 
feet out on the right side. 

The second quarter saw WPI 
chalk up the only tally of the 
period as John Mergian, sub for 
Richmond at center, upheld the 
honor of that position by going 
in alone on the UMass net and 
neatly tucked the ball in the 
lower left hand comer at the net. 
UMass came out for the sec- 
ond half determined to do some- 
thing about the situation. They 
lit the scoreboard for the first 
time with a little over a minute 
gone when Chuck Kepetta scored. 
Kepetta, who had been moved up 
from his left fullback position to 
center, picked up a loose ball in 
front of the net and drove it 
home to make the score 3-1. 

The game rocked along until 
the final minutes of the third 
period when UMass sped up the 
attack to swarm all over the WPI 

The Redmen, after missing an 
open net twice, scored in the final 
seconds when Paleocrassus made 
good on a direct kick, the ball 
rolling off the sprawling goalies' 

The frustrated Massmen had 


several opportunities during this 
short span, but just couldn't 
seern to put the ball in. In their 
anxiety the players tried every- 
thing to get the ball in the goal. 
One distraught hooter even for- 
got himself for the moment and 
tried to bat the ball in with his 

UMass continued to keep the 
pressure on at the start of the 
fourth period as they had the 
wind to their backs and the tide 
seemed to be turning. WPI put a 
crimp in their sails, however, as 
midway in the quarter Mergian 
scored his second goal of the 
day, getting the ball over the 
goal line even though covered 
well by the UMass defense. 

The Redmen hooters gave a 
very good account of themselves, 
especially in the second half. If 
they could have become untracked 
earlier they might have won go- 
ing away. Also if they had re- 
ceived some better breaks on 
their shots it would have been 
a different story. 

Paleocrassus played what had 
to be his best game of the season 
as all his shots were coming in 
hard and true and his centering 
passes were right on the button. 
One of the most expert ballhan- 
dlers in the League, the surpris- 
ing lad left many an astonished 
WPI defender standing in his 
tracks, by using his feet as 
adeptly as most people use their 

Chuck Hulett played his usual 
outstanding game on defense, fly- 
ing all over the field to break up 
plays. Chuck Repetta, Andy 
Psilackus, and Brad Whipple also 
played well. 

For WPI Richmond and Mer- 
gian, the two centers, provided 
their team with all the scoring, 
besides playing a good all around 
game. Lee-Aphom also played 
outstandingly on both offense and 

The Redmen play their final 
home game of the season Friday.

WMUA Interviews Kenton: 
Tape To Be Aired Oct. 26 

Holidays Which Fall On 
Weekdays Are Class Days 

JACK PARK '61, jazz director of WMUA, interviews mVss' A '\N*^ 
RICHARDS during Jazz-tacular. ERIC SANDEL '63 looks on. 


Holidays which fall in the mid- pattern, 
die of the week will no longer be 
class-less days here at UMass, it 
has been announced by Provost 
Shannon McCune. Those days af- 
fected are: Columbus Day, Octo- 
ber 12; Washington's Birthday, 
February 22; Patriots' Day, Ap- 
ril 19; and Memorial Day, May 

The move was incorporated by 
the registration board while 
working out the calendar for the 
period 1961-1963. The suggestion 
was reviewed by the Faculty Sen- 
ate and approved. The faculty 
originally recommended the idea 
to make for a better academic 

The only holidays affected are 
those which fall in the middle of 
the week, since these are "out of 
phase" with the academic pat- 
tern. Labs lost on these days 
must be made up at the end of 
the week or sometime in the fu- 
ture. This puts a strain on the 
make-up labs and causes confus- 
ion in student schedules. 

"The spirit of a holiday is not 
necessarily a vacation", said Mc- 
Cune. It is hoped the day can be 
made more meaningful through 
convocations and suitable exer-

Kentonian Concepts 

Stan Kenton demonstrates his 
amiable modesty by immediately 
accepting a first name informal- 
ity, and offers compelling sin- 
cerity and co-operation in the in- 
terviews. One of the most con- 
troversial figures in jazz, Stan 
is i-egarded as the originator of 
the Progre.ssive school, but when 
asked about this contribution, he 
modestly replies that theie were 
others working in that area. At 
the end of the interview, hearing 
the driving sounds of Count 
Basic's music reaching its brassy, 
penetrating peak, Stan sum- 
marizes his feelings about jazz 
quite poetically "That's just the 
sound of our existence." 

Miss Ann Richards. Stan's 
lovely vocalist- wife, proves she is 
a fine artist and performer in 
her own right. Her versatility is 
demonstrated by her warmth in 
the ballads and her ability to 
project Stan's famous driving 
brass section. As shown in her 
photo a very beautiful Ann 
Richards enraptures the inter- 

Marv Holliday, who played for 
our interviewers a very beauti- 
ful improvisation on Stella by 
Starlight, had played many 
names in jazz in the Woody Her- 
man Band before joining the 
Kenton band. He makes this 
healthy observation that all of 
the "Jazz Giants" ai-e unique in 
their own way and make their 
own contributions. Marv also 
condemns comparisons which im- 
ply that one (band, soloist) is 
better than another. Each is an 

Redmen Stop Northeastern 
7-0, Despite Careless Playing 

Old Man Time came to the aid 
of the stumbling Massachusetts 
defense in the dying seconds of 
Saturday's game. The clock 
whisked the ball from Northeast- 
ern's possession, and preserved a 
7-0 victory for the Redmen, be- 
fore 5500 fans at Alumni Field. 
The upset-minded Huskies had 
blasted their way 79 yarda in less 
than three minutes, and were 
pounding on the goal line's door 
when the all-important second 
hand of the clock reached the ma- 
gic mark of 0:00. 

The Redmen failed to organize 
any serious scoring drive until 
early in the fourth quarter. Then

of a slim 7-0 advantage. 

The Huskies crossed the UM 
goal line in the second quarter 
when senior fullback, Oscar Di- 
nino intercepted a Conway aerial 
and sprinted 30 yards for an ap- 
parent touchdown. His gallant ef- 
forts were futile, however, since 
the Hu.skics were called for

The Opcrerta Guilds 
World Premier Reviewed 

by AL BKKMAN '63 

Tvvu new faces were introduced to the world of 
the theater this past week in the Operetta Guild's 
production of Thunder In The Hills. Robert Holand 
and Russell Falvey, both L'Mass alumni, unveiled 
a fine musical drama that was unusually superior 
for a first production. 

The show, of course, did not seem quite as up 
to par as usual Guild productions, but it must be 
remembered that previous (iuild productions were 
written by men who have been writing shows for 
lifetimes: Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jules Styne, 
Jerome Kern, and the like. For Boland and Falvey, 
however, it was just the beginning — and a fine be- 
ginning it was. 

The music was thrilling and encompassed all emo- 
tions. The exciting "Gonna Raise a Roof" and "What 
a Day," were mixed with the inspirational "Creation 
Ballad" and "There's a land". All the winsome hu- 
mor of the hills was captured in "Fruit of the Vine," 
while the philosophical "When You are Loved" ex- 
pressed much of the theme of the show. 

The story opens in a remote town in the Ken- 
tucky Hills just after the Civil War. The townsfolk 
are preparing to welcome home two local brothers, 
and the stage comes alive with "What a Day". 

During the festivities, we are introduced to Joe 
Kane, a man who has been de.serted by his wife, and 
has become cruelly rejectful of the townspeople, 
mostly because they have been scorning him. The 
audience is shown that Joe (Don Brown) will be 
an important figure later in the story. 

The brothers return home, and Tom (Alan 
Couper) defeats Joe Kane in a wood-chopping con- 
test to win the town beauty, Melissa (Arlaine An- 
derson), for the upcoming dance. Tom and Meli.ssa 
soon get married in a wonderful scene where a 
house is actually built on stage ("Gonna Raise a 
Roof") reminiscent of the barn-raising scene in 
Broadway's "Plain and Fancy." Obviously, Joe is ex- 
tremely jealous of the marriage, because he has 
loved Melissa, only to have his advances rebuffed. 

At this point in the story, a strange change in 
plot occurs. All along, the audience has been led to 
believe that Tom and Melissa are the centers of 
the plot. But now a new, and by far a more impor- 
tant romance blossoms. Joe Kane's exuberant daugh- 
ter Margit (BufTy St. Marie) falls in love with Jeb 
Gentry (Tom Dodge). In her realization of the fact 
that she hasn't yet been able to get married. ("The 
Boys I've Met"), Margit works out a plan to snare 
Jeb ("When I Meet The Boy I Love"). 

But Jeb decides that he wants to see more of 
the world and plans to leave the Hills, but promises 
to return some day to Margit ("There's a Land"). 
Meanwhile in their cabin, Joe learns from Margit 
that Melissa would be alone that evening. He dis- 
appears from Margit and goes to the home of Me- 

In a scene of tremendous tension, Joe goes to 
Melissa and abuses her, but is interrupted by Jeb, 
who has been living with Tom and Melissa. Jeb ad- 
vances on Joe with a shotgun, and a fight ensues. 
The gun goes off accidentally and Jeb is killed. 

Immediately the scene shifts to Margit, whence 
occurs one of the most touching and pathetic .scenes 
in all of the theater. Margit, unaware that her father 
has killed Jeb, sings of her new love ("White Dove" 
and "This Has Got To Be Love"). 

Soon, however, the men of the town come armed 
to apprehend Joe. Margit knows where Joe's special 
hiding place is in the hills, but she to tell 
the townspeople where he is. 

Here is where the basic question of the plot lies. 
Does she, then, owe more respect to him as her 
father, or to the memory of her lover that he has 
killed? This question plagues Margit for days ("Duo 

Soon, however, the people of the town realize 
that by their scorn and rejection of Joe, they have 
turned him into the misanthrope he has become. 
The people convince Margit that, although what Joe 
did was wrong, they feel as much to blame for the 
calamity, and will not harm Joe, when they find him. 
The story ends as Margit, unable to find her 
father, promises to look for him and bring him home. 
The story is excellent, with great feeling, but 
much is distracted by the remoteness of the setting. 
The audience finds it hard to adjust to the .setting, 
and a lot of thr story in making the adjust- 
ment. The authors have tried to combine the ribaldry 
of "Li'l Abner" with the romance and feeling of 
"Oklahonda." Indeed Jof Kane bears a remarkable 
re.semblance to "Pore Jud" in the Rodgers and 
Hammerstein musical.

In Changing Times 

Pan V (Conr.) — The Bomb And Disaniiamenr 


Let us not beat ai»)urid the bush. It has been j)roven again and 
again that the effect of increased radiation upon the IxhIv is harmful. 
The contention that a "threshold" exists a'.tovo which there will f). 
negligible effects, is, in the niinds of a great body of scientists, u 
fallacy. Indeed, there has not bei n significant proof of the "thres- 
hold" concept to render it valid. Hut now you ask, "What about thr 
amount of radiation is in oui- atmosphere as a matter of natuial 
fact? Can't this be considered a threshold? 

To answer this, let me first subnut a few facts: 
"Every year about 7r),()()(^0()0 children are born in the world. 
About 2',v of the children that are born have obvious, serious <lel«'cls 
that are due to heredity, to bad genes. Thus about l,r)00,()00 chil- 
dren with seiious here<litaiy defects are born in the world each year." 
Why does this occur? 

.Although the complexities t)f natuie cloud over th<' more inti icate 
of the answers to this problem, one can state that the heiedity de- 
fects are caused by mutations or changes in the genetic constituents 
of the body. If we now keep in mihd the fact that radiations produce 
mutations, we can proceed further. 

.Mutations are, in general, harmful. To .see this, let us compare 
the parts in an alarm clock to the genes of the human body. Let us 
say that we indiscriminately change a part of the alarm clock. What 
are the chances that this alarm clock will work better? Obviously, 
the chances are small. In just the .same way, what are the chances ».f 
a genetic mutation producing a desirable effect? —obviously. So, my 
friend, you see why the thinking person winces when the .A.F.C. speaks 
of ".safe" of radiation. 

If we say that of the 1,500,000 defective children, 150,000 (10', 
generally accepted by most geneticists) are the result of normal back- 
ground radiation, what, indeed is to be consi(,lered a .safe We 
might even take l'/> of 1,500,000 children. This is still 15,000 seriously 
defective children! Thus I maintain that the very suggestion of a le- 
sumption of bomb tests (with the obvious results of incieased stronti- 
um— 90 and cesium— i:J7 in our atmosphere) constitutes an insult 
to the fraternity and intelligence of man. When I stated that our 
principal consitleration at the pre.sent time is testing and not "using," 
I was relying on a common theory: obviously, if neither we nor the 
Russians are testing, a nuclear ailvantage could not be gained. We 
must of, concede that the L\S. and Soviet capabilities are at 
the present on an equilibrium. It is only during this crucial period of 
equilibrium that agreements can be made. The con.sequences of an in- 
equilibrium (which is inheient in further nuclear testing by the great 
powers) are obvious. 

I realize that the great argument of Dr. Teller and some of his 
colleagues is: "How do we know that the Russians aren't testing?" 
To this, no layman can give a technically efficient answer. There 
are of course the two factions on this question: one which says that 
.sensitive seismographs and radiological equipment are sufficient to 
detect even smaller nuclear testing, the other which disputes this. (I 
might add that both sides have good argument.) Dr. Teller says that 
to maintain an equilibrium we must test further. I say that this is 
fallacious in that further testing by the two powers will not maintain 
an equilibrium of military power but rather an unbalance of such 
I will now take a significant step. I will talk of other weapons in 
addition to the bomb. In the category of these additional weapons one 
might include nuclear rockets and nuclear submarines or the "carriers 
of the payload," if .vou will. In categories, as well as in other 
types of weapons, the Soviet Union and the United States are forced 
not only to maintain an equilibrium but to obtain an advantage. 

I will never understand those who .say: "We must keep the bomb 
as a tool of equilibrium and thus as an effective deterrent." On the 
surface this is a rational approach. Yet, when you ask them about 
nuclear testing they say: "Well, since we can't trust the Russians, we 
must constantly improve our weapons." 

All right, now let us say both we and the Ru.ssians jump into 
testing. Obviou.sly, in time, one of us will hold a significant advantage 
Who will it be? 

The whole point of my article is this: 

.Although at the present there has been no bilateral agreement 

on weapons testing and disarmament, can we afford to continue this 

race for the ultimate deterrent, which, in actuality, would become the 

ultimate weapon? This, of, must be answered in two parts. 

(1) Since we have stopped nuclear testing, we should maintain 

this position.

Since no agreement has yet been made of disarmament, we 
are forced to continue our great expenditures on weapons 
other than bombs. 
But, my friend, remember this. When Mr. Nixon talks of the "ab- 
solute and unattackable deterrent", he is in effect, talking through 
his hat! There is no such thing!! 

Thus, it is my contention that the policy of the great powers is 
not to bargain from an equal but from an advantageous position. To 
back this up, I refer you to the two P's: The of Dr. Teller (i 
militant tester) and the persecution of Dr. Pauling (an arch-foe of 
testing). While Mr. Teller appears on "Meet the Pres.s," Mr. Pauling 
appears on "Mfct the Unamerican Activities Committee." 
DiHarmament and Outside Pressures 
I submit that neither the Soviet Union nor the United States has 
sincerely pursued the negotiations on disarmament and nuclear con- 
trols. This has, in part, been due to political and economic pressures 
as well as mutual distrust. Indeed, in the U.S. we are at a vast disad- 
vantage since in a great free enterprise system such as ours, lobby- 
ists can rxeicise considerable pressures on our legislators. Thus, if 
this mad race for arms continues, a clear-thinking economist would 
find it difficult to concede that the "military to consumer goods 
switchover" could be made without the greatest difficulties. 

Do not deceive yourself. There are pressures in both countries 
working frantically against disarmament! We must ease this pres.sure 
before it is too late. Indeed, in this "cold war" atmosphere, pressuies 
arc rapidly building up. We must turn back before it's tpo late. 

There is no ultimate military deterrent. The only .suace.ssful de- 
torrent is di.saimament along with adequate inspection and controls. 
In the long run, this is our only hope. 


New Danish Quartet 


As a pait of the extended Concert .Association 
.series. The New Danish Quaitet performed .here 
la.-t Tue.sday night in IJowker Auditorium. The 
<|ua.tet, a young group of four Danish musicians, 
sponsored by King Frederick of Denmark, plaved' 
a M(,zart <|uartet, followed by a composition ' bv 
Niels Viggo Bentzon, a contemporary Danish pian- 
ist and eompo.ser, and ended with a Brahams ouar- 

Following the usual .Mozart style, the Quartet 
in (; major is a ve-y precise, reserve<l composition, 
rehixing in a few places to exhibit delicate meh.di- 
ous passages, not contrasting, however, to the rig- 
i«lity of the work as a whole. This technical master- 
piece was j)erformed with a well-defined exactness 
which certainly displa.ved the ability of the quartet. 

Bentzon's Quartet. Opus 121. was an enjo.vable 
change from the rigidity of the .Mozait. The ex- 
citing thing about this composition was the mar- 
velous irony which raced through the entire three 
movements, without regard to customary form, 
rhythm, or melody. Throughout the piece, dissonant 
chords built up to climaxes of cal:ipulting n..tes 
falling against one another in a pamlemonium of 
sound and emotion. Never resting (juietly, its mel- 
lower moments were intenupted by pieicing, (jues- 
tioning chonls or low mumbling discordant notes. 
The dilliculty arising in the performance of such a 
woik seeme<l to be effortlessly overcome by the 
members of the Quartet, who i)layed purpo.sefully 
and with determination throughout the entire piece. 
The selection by Brahms, his Quartet in A 
min(»r. was more perfunctory than Brahms as a 
rule although certainly more freely moving than 
the Mozart quartet. The .seeming lack of fullness and 
the superficiality throughout this four movement 
work might be due not to Brahms nor to any lack 
in the Quartet but to the acoustical difticult'ies in 
Bowker Auditorium. The heavy, velvet drapes al- 
most surrounding the four musicians may hav»- 
absorbed most of the fine tones of the instruments 
rather than allowing them to flow out to the aud- 

Though the auditorium was not filled to capacity, 
the for the Quartet brought them back 
to play a delightful melodious encore, which was 
probably a Haydn andante. This airy, free-moving 
piece, contiasted quite strongly with the rigorous 
program which preceded it and .seemed to delight 
and relax the audience. 

The members of the New Danish Quartet seemed 
to enjoy performing as much as the audience en- 
joyed their performance. Thus, they became an in- 
tegral part of their own music and enhanced its ex- 

As a sample of the Concert Association's pro- 
gram for this year, the New Danish Quartet may 
certainly be clas.sified as fine entertainment. The 
Association ought to be thanked by the student body 
and encouraged in their efforts by hearty attendance 
at the remaining performances of the sea.son.

for the immediate future. 

Since their arrival on campus, 
this organization has performed 
many duties and served at vari-

junction with the Scroll.s, the 
Keys conducted Freshman Orien- 
tation Weekend which included 

the selling of beanies and the co- 
ordinating of the picnic and 
dance. In the weeks that followed, 
the group assisted at the Regis-

football and soccer teams; served 
at the football games and rallies; 
organized and supervised the Stu-

DR. FROOD'8 THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Early tO bed ttud 

early to rise is an excellent ivay to avoid people. 

Dear Dr. Frood: What should I look for first when I 
look for a wife? 

DEAR SEARCHING: Her husband. 


Dear Dr. Frood: Our son has been in college three 
months, and we haven't heard a word from him. 
Not even a post card. I don't want him to think I am 
too demanding or overprotective, but frankly I am 
worried. What should I do? 

Worried Mother 

DEAR WORRIED: Why worry after only three months 
in college? He's still learning how to write. 

Dear Dr. Frood: Don't you agree that every college 
man has the right, in fact, the duty, to stand up and 
speak out for the things he believes in? Tomorrow 
I am going straight to the college president and 
tell him, politely but firmly, what is wrong here— 
the inferior teaching, the second-rate accommoda- 
tions, the bad food. My friends think I am wrong to 
do this. What do you think? 


DEAR DETERMINED: I applaud your spirit, young 
man! Had I been able, I would have commended 
you in a more personal letter. However, you forgot 
to leave a forwarding address. 



Dear Dr. Frood: I am puzzled by the Lucky Strike 
slogan: "Remember how great cigarettes used to 
taste? Luckies still do." I've been sitting here for 
hours, thinking, thinking, thinking, but for the life 
of me I can't remember. What should I do about 

Dear Dr. Frood: I am six foot five, 225 pounds, 
handsome, tanned, muscled, a good athlete. But I 
can't get along with girls because I can never think 
of anything to say. What do you suggest? 

DEAR BRAWNY: "Me Tarzan, you Jane." 

gest you lean back, relax, 
and light up a Lucky Strike. 
I'm sure it will all come 
back to you— who you are, 
what you were, where you 
lived, everything. 


FROOD FAD SWEEPS COLLEGES! They laughed when Dr. Frood started the new 
college craze of enjoying a Lucky while hanging from a coat rack. But now every- 
body is doing it! Smoking Luckies, that is. Today college students smoke more 
Luckies than any other regular. Reason: With or without coat rack, Luckies deliver 
the greatest taste in smoking today. 

CHANGE TO LUCKIES anof get some taste for a change!

Redmen Edge Surprising Nortlieastern Squad, 7-0 

UMass Again Fizzles On Home 
Ground As Clock Saves Victory 

(Continued from page 1) 
57 yards. The UM signal-caller 
faded back into the endzone from 
his own 5, and connected with 
the sophomore end, who was 
downed on the Northeastern 38. 

During the early stages of the 
skirmish the Huskies continual- 
ly set the Redmen back with ex- 
ceptionally long punts and quick 

Although the Redmen piled up 
138 yards and seven first downs 
in the first half, they couldn't 
put together a sustained scoring 
drive. The men from Boston, 
though only racked up one first 
down, and could only buck the 
UMass defenses for 62 yards. 

The Massachusetts s\ o r i n g 
drive began on the last play of 
the third quarter when Roger 
Benvenuti returned a Dinino punt 
nine yards to his own 43. 

When the final stanza dawned 

Conway teamed with Dave Har- 
rington to set the ball on the 
Huskie's 40. After two passes 
failed, Conway found Lussier 
who raced to the 15. Al Cavan- 
augh's block sprang Lussier loose 
just after Sam grabbed the ball. 
Shortly thereafter Lussier racked 
up a fii-st down on the 4, and 
toted the pigskin over two plays 

The next Redmen threat oc- 
curred late in the game when 
John McCormick intercepted an 
Ed Dutczak aerial and returned 
to the Huskie's 36. On fourth 
down Bamberry attempted a field 
goal from the 40, His boot, how- 
ever, fell short amX Joe Zabil- 
ski's crew brought the ball out to 
the 20. 

The fired up Huskies donned 
their battle armor and started 
goalward. Diminutive Ed Dut- 
czak warmed up his arm and

started pitching strikes a.s the 
Huskies marched down the field. 
The Bostonians gained i>ossession 
on the UM 15 with 25 seconds 
remaining, when interference 
wa.s called on a Mass. pass de- 
fender. The Hedmen defense, 
which had stymied all previous 
drives, seemed to disintegrate un- 
der the blistering attack. The fad- 
ing seconds saw the Huskies 
trying to call time and start a 
play from tht' one yard line, but 
time marched on and the next 
play, the possible winning one, 
never materialized. 

The Redmen now own a 5-1 re- 
cord for the season. Only two 
New England schools, undefeat- 
ed Yale and Tufts, have out- 
classed us record wise . . . Lussier 
did most of the work again in 
this contest. Sam ran 23 of the 
82 plays . . . Many teen agers 
who were guests as part of High 
School Day saw their first inter- 
collegiate game , . . Jack Conway 
completed six of 14 pass attempts 
for 120 yards. Twice Paul Ma- 
jeski was on the receiving end, 
and this combination accounted 
for 67 yards . . . The Redmen had 
been shut out by the Huskies in 
their two previous meetings, and 
almost didn't make it this time 
either . . . Massachusetts now 
trains its guns on the Terriers of 
BU. Another victory will make 
them the winningest Redmen 
team since 19.32, when UM com- 
piled a 7-2 mark.

YanCon This Week 

The big game of the Yankee 
Conference this week is at Dur- 
ham, when UConn meets New 
Hampshire Saturday. The Wild- 
cats are the only boys who can 
stop UConn from gaining an- 
other YanCon title. New Hamp- 
shire came close last year, losing 
to UConn by only 1 point, 39-38. 


There will be a meeting of 
all candidates for the Varsity 
Hockey team today at 5:00 in 
Room 10 of the Cage. All those 
interested are urged to attend.

No Yankee Conference games 
were jjlayed this week. All the 
YanCon teams jilayed outside the 
Conference. Outside of the U- 
Mass game, of most importance 
to Kedmen fans was the L'Conn 
upset of B. L'., 16-14. 

In other contests, Maine tied 
Mates College, 13-i:i, Rhode Ls- 
land was trounced by Brown :H\-

One of the brightest aspirants to the l.Mass varsity team is

should be a boon to the varsity.

By Springfield

On Friday afternoon th«' L'- 
.Alns.s .soccer team was defeated 
hy .1 strong Springfield College 
»lut. to the tune of 7-0. Spring- 
field stiuck early and often as 
they built up a 4-0 lead at half- 
time. They slowed down somewhat 
in the second half as they scored 
only three goals. This was more 
than enough, however, to enable 
the Harons to coast in. 

The Redmen couldn't cope with 
tlic speedy and agile Springfield 
hf)ys who weje here, there, and 

Wednesday the UMass team 
journeys down the road apiece to 
visit Amherst. Amherst, no doubt 
has a warm reception waiting for 
the Redmen who would like noth- 
ing better than to spoil it. 

Thunder In . . . 

(Covtinuftl fntni juiift' J) 
On the whole, however, the 
Story was a good one. The cast- 
ing could have been better, 
though. Huffy St. .Marie was 
magnificent as .Maigit. and stole 
the show with her vitality and 
talent. Arlaine Anderson, .Alan 
Couper, and Tom Dodge were 
ade<|UHle in their roles, but didn't 
l>r<»ject enough warmth and feel- 
ing to be convincing. 

Don Hrown, as Joe Kane, was 
• liso admirable, as were several 
minor characters: Steve Allen in 
his liotous portrayal of Fess; 
Karen Canfield as loving and 
sympathetic Maw; and Judith St. 
Joan and Paul Cwiklik as the 
amusing Tqlly and Robey Pyelitt. 

In summary, it seems that the 
Operetta Guild did not get a 
chance to show its great talent 
and ability to perform musicals, 

when it decided to do an original 
play. This is nobody's fault. The 
composers did a good job, but the 
campus is used to finer things 
from the (^uild. The acting and 
chorus work was in no way as 
fine as in last year's production.

Norman Cousins Discusses 
^Divided World' In Springfield 


' Five distinpTuished scholars 
gathered at Springfield College 
Friday to mark that institution's 
75th anniversary with a sym- 
posium on "The Role of the 
Whole Man In A Divided 
W o r 1 d". Participati'ng w e r e 
Aldous Huxley, visiting profes- 
sor of humanities at M.I.T.; 
Margaret Mead, writer and an- 
thropologist; Huston Smith, 
M.I.T. professor of philosophy; 
Dean Arthur Steinhaus of 
George Williams College; and 
Norman Cousins, editor of the 
Saturday Review. 

Cousins, delivering the major 
address of the all-day confei-ence, 
discussed the dangers in today's 
"divided world". He urged the 
public to take immediate action 
in a "divided world which is 
rapidly becoming combustible". 

Our Insecurity Defined 

In a divided world "it is not 
enough to respond to force with 
greater force" in the search for 
security, he stated. "It is not 
what we don't have, but what 
others have, that defines our 
own insecurity". "When one na- 
tion has the mea-ns to obliterate 
the other, and both know this, 
sooner or later one will have to 

'61 Assistant News Editor 

go ahead against the other." 

Both the U.S. ana Russia are 
running calculated risks, he 
stated. "The number of decisions 
that must be made about the in- 
tentions of the other fellow is 
multiplying geometrically". 

Cousins stated he believed the 
answer to rest in a world organ- 
ization such as the U.N. "A 
world organization should an- 
ticipate crises, however, not go 
after them with a mop", he com- 
mented. "Men must think beyond 
world anarchy." 

"The U.N. is a magnificent be- 
ginning", he believes, but it does 
not meet w^orld problems with 
world law. Cousins stated his 
two objections to the U.N. or- 
ganization: first, he regards the 
Security Council as incompetent 
as long as u veto power exists. 
Secondly "As long as the General 
Assembly works on the one- 
vote- per-n a t i o n principle the 
larger nations will never trans- 
fer real pow^er there". 

Cousins holds little hope of 
governments effecting the U.N. 
changes he outlined or a new dis- 
armament policy without a "i)Ow- 
erful mandate from the people

Campus Varieties 
To Be Cast At 
Stockbridge Hall 

Casting for the 1961 Campus 
Varieties will take place this 
week, October 25, 26, and 27 at 
7 p.m. in rooms 113 and 114 of 
Stockbridge Hall. 

The Campus Varieties is a stu- 
dent-written, produced, and di- 
rected effort staged annually un- 
der the sponsorship of Adelphia 
and the Revelers. 

This year's production will be 
staged March 2, 3, 4 in Bowker 
Auditorium. These dates, later 
in the year than usual, were se- 
lected to allow a longer period 
for casting, rehearsing, and pol- 
ishing the production. 

Both major and minor roles 
will be cast this week. Anyone 
possessing talent in acting, sing- 
ing, or dancing, is cordially in- 
vited to attend the casting ses- 

Last year's offering was the 
original production "The Flowers 
Grow Wild" with a Greenwich 
Village theme. 


Collegian Staff Reporter 

Dean Albert Purvis of the 
School of Education is elated 
over the new Education School 
building now under construction 
here. The $2.2 million structure, 
located behind the Women's Phy- 
sical Education Building, will 
relieve the long-overciowded 
Machmer Hall facilities. Purvis 
exfKJcts the new building to be 
completed in June 1961. 

A major feature of the new 
structure will be an elementary 
school comprising kindergarten 
through grade six. The school 
will operate under a unique ar- 
rangement with the town of Am- 
herst school committee. Town 
school children will make up the 
expected 325 enrollment figure. 
The facility will offer UMass 
education majors a chanca to ob- 
serve the youngsters through 
ooie-way glass. Closed circuit TV 
will also be part of the system of

mentary school is the Mark's 
Meadow School, as the land upon 
which it will stand was owned by 
an Amherst farmer, Mark Dick- 
inson. The school will i>eceive its 
first pupils in September 1961. 
The Mark's Meadow School will 
be staffed and maintained by 
the town of Amherst. 

In addition, the School of Edu- 
cation structure Mrill house the 
offices of the Dean, as well as 
regular classrooms and staff of- 
fices. The structure is presently 
two-thirds completed.

House Upholds Veto Of llMass Dorms Bond Plan 


Cahill Cites Reasons 
For Faculty Turnover 

Assistant News Editor 

Fred V. Cahill, Jr., presently 
Dean of the School of General 
Studies at North Carolina State 
College in Raleigh, N.C., tvas for 
several years Dean of the College 
of Arts and Sciences at UMass. 
He left the University last sum- 
mer to assume his present posi- 

"Given the present widespread 
shortage of faculty, I should ex- 
pect a good many faculty mem- 
bers to leave the University, and 
I should expect they would leave 
for a variety of reasons", stated 
Dean Fred V. Cahill, Jr. 

"No place is likely to be con- 
genial to everyone, and all de- 
partures are not the clear loss 
that the individual concerned is 
likely to think. I have never heard 
of a university which was able, 
or was under any obligation, to 
accept each individual's estimate 
of his own worth." 

Cahill stated that at UMass the 
problem of faculty replacement 
and improvement is rendered very 
difficult by the salary scale, the 
teaching loads, research facilities, 
and the like. "The rate of turn- 
over here, during the last few 
years, was not alarming, but the 
problems of recruitment were 

"The UMass faculty ought to 
be larger, but I have seen no 
convincing evidence that the size 
of classes is the most important 
variable. I certainly do not think

it is as important as the quality 
of the faculty" stated the dean. 

University Must Expand and 

"Given the population situation 
in Massachusetts, the University 
has no alternative to growth." 
The former UMass dean stated he 
sees no reason, however, why 
the quality will not continue to 
improve at the University. "A 
good deal depends upon the 
quality of the people who plan 
for the growth."

Dr, Ricci Comments Upon 
Men 's Physical Education 

Dr. Benjamin Ricci of the 
Men's Physical Education De- 
partment is greatly impressing 
students with his sincerity, vis- 
ion, and deep interest in student 
and social affairs. When asked to 
comment on his popularity, Dr. 
Ricci stated, "I am very flattered 
and honored, but I would like to 
say that an instructor is made by 
his students, just as a good team 
makes a good coach. Therefore, I 
give much credit to the students. 
I would also like to say that 
basically, our students are sin- 
cere and, by far, very apprecia- 

Dr. Ricci seems to enjoy work- 
ing with youth, particularly those 
who have had an injustice done 
to them. "I try to place myself 
in the other fellow's shoes, and 
I'm sure the majority has gone 
away satisfied,** Ricci commented. 

Dr. Ricci participates in many 
activities and excels or has a 
major part in most of them. In 
the Phys. Ed. Dept. he is a pro- 
fessor and teaches courses in hu- 
man anatomy and tests and 
measurements. He is also Direc- 
tor of the Stockbridge 2 year pro- 
gram, Chairman of Proficiency 

Tests Committee, Chairman of 
Undergraduate Curriculum Com- 
mittee, and is also a member of 
Departmental Council and Com- 
mittees. His other varied activi- 
ties include: Chairman of the 
Alumni Association, Faculty 
Senate, and Chairman of the 
United Christian Foundation. 

Dr. Ricci is also a major in 
the Air Force Reserve at the 
Westover AF Base, where he 
works in Training. He has at- 
tended staff schools and is often 
called upon by the AF for varied 
affairs. Dressed in helmet, mask, 
tanks, and all the other pilot 
equipment, Dr. Ricci presents 
himself before public school stu- 
dents. Looking like a space age 
hero, he talks on AF physiology 
before the youngsters. 

As far as the P.E. future is 
concerned, Dr. Ricci hopes to see 
a new facility, which can be 
translated into an expanded pro- 
gram for students. "But for now, 
we can only do with what we 
have," he stated. Dr. Ricci is 
truly looking forward to a much 
better and brighter future. If 
there's a job to do, Dr. Ricci will 
have a hand in making sure it's 

By a 200-1 roll call Monday, 
the House upheld the veto of Gov. 
Furcolo of legislation to allow the 
University of Massachusetts 
Building Association to sell an- 
other $4,000,000 of bonds for 

$47 Million Program 

At the same time Gov. Fur- 
colo called for the approval of 
capital outlay bond issues for 
dormitories at the university and 
elsewhere which amount to a 
total of $47,000,000. That includes 

Captain Willis 
To Speak On 
OCC Training 

Captain Lawrence J. Willis 
from the Boston office of the 
Marine Corps Officer Selection 
Office will be in the S.U. on 2, 3 
and 4 November 1960. 

Captain Willis will discuss the 
Platoon Leaders Class (PLC), 
ground or aviation, for freshmen, 
sophomores, and juniors, and the 
Officer Candidate Course for sen- 
iors and graduate students. 

In the PLC program the stu- 
dent will attend two six-week 
summer training courses at 
Quantico, Virginia, and upon 
receipt of his degree will be 
commissioned a Second Lieu- 
tenant in the Marine Corps. Stu- 
dents enrolling in this program 
have no drills, military classes, or 
other formations during the reg- 
ular school year. 

Students entering the Officer 
Candidate Course will, after re- 
ceiving their degree attend ten 
weeks' training at Quantico, Vir- 
ginia, and upon successful com- 
pletion of this training will be 
commissioned a Second Lieu- 
tenant in the Marine Corps. The 
P.L.C. course is designed to offer 
a program so that the military 
experience will be of value in 
one's development. 

Captain Willis will be glad to 
answer any questions concerning 
the Marine Officer Programs. 

For female junior and senior 
students whose post-graduation 
plans have not yet been made, a 
Woman Marine Officer, Captain 
Jenny WRENN will also be pre- 

a six-year construction program 
for UMass of $26,310,000; $550,- 
000 for plans for Lowell Tech, 
and a six-year total of $20,215,- 
000 for all the teachers colleges. 

The governor stated that the 
attempt to establish a Massachu- 
setts State Office Building As- 
sociation based on the University 
of Massachusetts Building As- 
sociatioh had resulted in the 
state association being declared 
unconstitutional. This put a shad- 
ow on possible further sales of 
the bonds of the University of 
Massachusetts Association which 
was created in the administra- 
tion of Gov. Leverett Saltonstall 
in 1939. 

The University of Massachu- 
setts Association is in the proc- 
ess of turning over the first 
dormitory facilities built then. 
The cost has been totally amor- 
tized through collection of fees 
from students. In its decision 
last winter the state Supreme 
Judicial Court said that there 
was a difference between a 
private authority supported by 
fees paid directly by the state 
and a private authority sup- 
ported by fees paid by private 
citizens, but it would not rule on 
that question unless the ques- 
tion came to it. 

Furcolo Proposes 

In his message, Gov. Furcolo 
called on the Legislature to give 
a two thirds vote of approval to 
the earlier actions of the Lowell 
and University of Massachusetts 
associations to better support 
the bond issues already issued 
and supported by those groups. 

He said a bare majority of the 
UMass. trustees had favored the 
establishment of a separate au- 
thority to continue the construc- 
tion of the dormitories and other 
revenue producing facilities at 
the university. 

Opposed by Mahoney 

Finally, Comissioner of Ad- 
ministration Charles F. Mahoney 
recommended "against the crea- 
tion of a single or super au- 
thority" which would "place in 
the hands of a separate group 
vital authority affecting admis- 
sions and other policies for all 
of our public higher educational 
institutions, thus acting, in ef- 
fect, as a totally independent 
higher educational authority." 

Gov. Furcolo, however, "with- 
out comment" submitted the 
University of Massachusetts trus- 
tee bill for such an authority and 
said he would sign it if it con- 
tains proper safeguards. 

Socialist Candidate 
Haas To Speak Here 

Collegian Staff Reporter 

Eric Haas, the Socialist Labor and Freedom." 
party candidate for President 
will speak in the Council Room 
of the SU on Thursday, October 
27 at 8:00 p.m. The 55-year-old 
editor of the "Weekly People", 
official newspaper of the Socialist 
Labor Party was named the 
party nominee for President at 
a convention in New York City, 
May 8. He was also the party 
candidate in 1952 and 1956. 

Haas is running with Georgia 
Cozzini, vice-presidental candi- 
date, on a ticket that feels 
capitalism is doomed and looks 
on Russia as a bureaucratic 
despotism that masquerades as 
socialism. The party is using as 
its slogan "Vote Under the Arm

Haas was born in Lincoln, Ne- 
braska in 1905, of German and 
Danish immigrant parents. In 
1928 he became associated with 
the Socialist Party. He has also 
run for governor of New York, 
U.S. Senator from Oregon and 
New York and Mayor of New 
York City, all on the Socialist- 
Labor ticket. 

The vice-presidential candidate 
is a Milwaukee housewife with 
two children, one a University of 
Wisconsin student. She is now on 
a speaking tour of the Pacific 

The goal -of the party is that 
after being "supported at the 
polls by the Working-class ma- 
jority, the elected candidates of 
the Socialist-Labor Party will 
take over the political state, not 
to administer it, but to disband 
it. The reins of government will 
simultaneously be passed to the 
integrally organized Socialist In- 
dustrial Union. This is the peace- 
ful and civilized way to accom- 
plish the Socialist revolution in 
America so imperatively demand- 
ed in this greatest crisis in hu- 
man history." 

Commenting on the candidate, 
John P. Quinn, local party or- 
ganizer, said that he had been 
attracting more response than 
any time in the past, and that 
Massachusetts voting totals for 
the party hold up pretty well. 
He pinpointed the Boston and 
Lynn areas as the strongest areas 
of state support. 

Sponsored by the Political Sci- 
ence Association, the public is 
cordially inVited to what prom- 
ises to be an interesting evening^. 



Junior Honors? 

A Query 

Last spring the Collegian ran a news 
item on a junior honors program, which had 
been proposed and organized by members of 
the faculty and administration. A further 
statement about this pursuit of scholasticism 
had been made, briefly, in the last page of 
the section, Undergraduate Curricula, in the 
1960-61 University Bulletin. 

The new program was hailed by the cam- 
pus community as a major addition to our 
honors system, which already included an 
excellent senior honors project program — 
two semesters of independent study (under 
the guidance of an advisor) in the student's 
major department, culminating in a written 
paper best described as an undergraduate 

When the juniors honors program — 
Honors 51 — was announced no mention was 
made of the nature of the studies to be un- 
dertaken. Only an elusive statement in the 
Bulletin gave any clue. But, we did have a 
junior honors program at last! Everyone 
was pleased. Everyone was satisfied. 
Then the matter was dropped. 
This fall many interested juniors en- 
deavored to find out if they qualified for hon- 
ors work, and, if so, how they could begin to 
take advantage of the new honors program. 
Other foresighted students queried their 
advisors as to how they might prepare to 
meet the requirements of the program in 
their junior year. But no one seemed to know 
any of the answers. True, we had a junior 
honors program on paper, but, in effect, 
there was still no such thing. 

When will this program be ready for the 
students' benefit? Will it be open first to the 
Class of '63 or '64 or? And what shall the 
requirements be? Students hoping to do hon- 
ors work ought to know what grades and 
other recommendations they will need in or- 
der to qualify. 

When shall we know?

University Chorale 

The first chorale concert of the season Is 
being presented tonight at 8:00 P.M. in Bow- 
ker Auditorium. The University Chorale will 
sing a capella "Sleepers, Wake/' a cantata by 
Bach, and madrigals written by Thomas AAor- 
ley. Featured soprano soloist will be Lee Carl- 
son; tenor soloists will be brothers Donald 
and Curtis Paine. A piano recital by Mr. El- 
liott Schwartz of the music department will 
also be included in the program. Conducted 
by Dr. John R. King, the Chorale will climax 
its concert with "The Last Words of David'' 

It is the female student's prerogative to have her books carried 
for her, to have doors opened for her, to have seats given her, and to 
be asked on dates. In all of these she is the recipient, not the doer- 
she is willingly and-if so gifted-fetchingly submissive, not initia- 
tive. This is all very well, for where matters concerning female tem- 
perament are concerned due respect must be given to her sex. Emo- 
tionally and physically a woman is susceptible; therefore a man's 
sensitivity to or his understanding of this is reflected in his treatment 
of her from letting her get into the lifeboat first down to opening the 
car door. These more minor duties seem trivial to a callou., masculine 
temperament, but the more sensitive a man is to a woman emotionally 
the more consistently and thoroughly will he attend to these small 
dee<ls of chivalry. He does not let her walk before him to her seat at 
a public function because she miRht get lost behind him, but because 
he observes the principle of her relative inferiority in regard to 
stability of emotions and physical strength. He does not open the car 
door because she has not figured out how to use the handle, but be- 
cause he is overtly giving recognition to her dependent status as a 
woman. And. let's face it, girls, we are dependent. But not altogether. 
And this is the gist of a contemporary problem between the 
sexes. Temperament and physical stamina are confused with inteN 
lectual stamina. Boys lift an eyebrow or assume amused tolerance if 
a girl asserts an idea with any force of conviction. I remember a 
Christmas party of recent years; the room was populated with Yale 
and Smith students. The girls sat around gossiping or chatting lightly I 
with the boys. The boys puffed their pipes and bantered with as much 
facile obscenity as they could. Almost unoberved a group of boys 
gathered in a comer to criticize the educational system, specifically 
political science courses. Spurretl by un-feminine enthusiasm I hurried 
over and »poke out in ringing tones. There was masculine chuckling 
and something like a gentle suggestion to go chase myself. This did 
not crush me, but kindled my agitation. What finally made me slink 
away was the opprobrium in pencilled eyes across the room. Ap- 
parently they gave this behavior as little sanction as did the boys. 

Is this attitude realistic ? If a man found it humiliating, say, to 
lose a boxing-match with a woman he would be justified. But an un- 
healthy association has been built up in our society between masculine 
strength of body and strength of mind, between his stability of tem- 
perament and accuracy of thought. If a man finds it painful to lose 
an argument with a woman he is— among other things— a bigot. Is 
he debating to score a victory or to achieve a truth? Most would claim 
the latter. If so, why the humiliation? Probably because he cannot 
reconcile his consciousness of her as both a woman and as an intel- 
lectual opponent. He thinks his debating with her is as much a test 
of his male-ness as being able to climb a mountain quicker or better. 
What a pity that sexual differences should affect the validity of our 



To the Editor: 

There is good news and ^ bright future ahead 
for Johnny— you know, the one who can't read. He 
CAN have a college education— at UMass, where 
the librarians will be delighted to see him. They cer- 
tainly don't like those of us who CAN read. 

It seems to me that our new library has been 
built solely for the benefit of the library staff. 
When a student attempts (heaven forbid, but some 
do!) to take out a book, he is treated like the case- 
hardened criminal they think he is. To get a book, 
it is first necessary^to fill out a call-slip, complete 
with every number *on the card in the card cata- 
logue, even the number of pages, the year of pub- 
lication, and any other numbers you can find. Look 
closely for them— turn the card over, too— because 
if you don't have a whole lot of nice numbers you 
won't get anything! It doesn't matter if the title or 
author are given; no librarian can read WORDS; all 
they can read are NUMBERS. 

After you hand this little slip in, you are given 
a close scrutiny by the warden— er, librarian. If you 
look respectable enough, they will go and look for 
your book. When they return an hour later, the 
chances are 9 out of 10 you will hear one of 4 
things: "It's on reserve." "It's out." "It's been re- 
ported missing." Or simply— and best of all— "I 
don't know where it is." 

If by any strange chance the book IS in, you are 
allowed to take it out— AFTER you submit to an in- 
vestigation by the CIA, House Un-American Ac- 
tivities Committee, FBI. and all other pertinent 
organizations. When you've received your security 
clearance, you show the librarian the sacred ID 
card, SIGN your name on the blue card, and PRINT 
it on the white card. 

You may then, having spent half an hour, take 
your book and leave. 

Cynically yours,

To the Editor: 

The Operetta Guild would like to thank you for 
^•^our review of Thunder in the Hills. It was essen- 
tially valid, but we feel the need to clarify one main 
objective. Your reviewer said in a sense we fell 
short of Broadway, we know this; but we want to 
make a place for original theatre at the University. 
His final paragraph expressed a desire to see the 
Guild return to the old guard of tried musical thea- 
tre. This is an injustice to the university and educa- 
tional theatre. 

The people who worked for five strenuous weeks 
to produce, write, direct, act and build were doing 
all this for the first time. They had no Broadway 
production to copy or use as a crutch. This was an 
attempt by University people to create an original; 
the Guild has done a far greater thing to further 
artistic potential than ever before.
